Array of chars is considered an object.

Agree with gupsbassi. Array is an object irrespective of what does it store (object or primitive).

You can't do that anyway, it wouldn't compile as you have not allocated it to any variable - just in the same way you couldn't say : char = 'b';

No by definition a primitive value is not an object.   Primitives are simple data types like int, char, double. The example you have above is a String which is actually an object. Java just translates the "hello" into a string object for you.
