Is String a Primitive datatype or Non-Primitive? (Since String is an Object)

I know String is a Primitive data type, but it can also be an Object.
If it's an Object, how can it be Primitive?


String s1="hello";
String s2=new string ("hello");

Wow, an example was in that last post from it_saige... "While int is a primitive, Integer wraps the value of the primitive type int in an object"

The others are...  Long, Short, Double, Float, Character, Boolean and Byte
