1. In Java, is it safe to assume a certain size of the primitive types for bitwise operations? stackoverflow.com
Given Java's "write once, run anywhere" paradigm and the fact that the Java tutorials give explicit bit sizes for all the primitive data types without the slightest hint that this is ...

4. Dumping the bit values of a primitive type coderanch.com
The easy way is with Integer.toHexString() or Long.toHexString(). Unfortunately these don't bad the result with zeros, which is something you probably want to do if you're going to be writing multiple hex values one after another. And annoyingly, JDK 5's Formatter class doesn't seem to support zero-padding a hex string either. Not the way I'd want, anyway. You can do this: ...
5. Bit shifting long primitives - strange behavior forums.oracle.com
Shifting int by N produces the same result as shifting it by N % 32. Shifting a long by N produces the same result as shifting it by N % 64. So you sihft your int 33, which is the same as shifting it 1, and then it gets promoted to a long when you assign it to newVal.
