java.lang.Float Class and Methods


The java.lang.Float class wraps a value of primitive type float in an object. An object of type Float contains a single field whose type is float. This class provides several utility methods for converting a float to a String and a String to a float, as well as other constants and methods useful when dealing with a float.

Float class implements Comparable Interface that’s help while sorting list of Objects on natural order.
