Casting is when you convert an object type to another object type. For example you convert an "Integer" to a "Number".

Autoboxing is when you convert a primitive to an object. For example you convert an "int" to an "Integer".

Boxing is when you convert a primitive type to a reference type,
(only between primitive type and wraaper classes )



Casting is when you want one type to be treated as another type (its may be a your own class _)
