Wrapper Classes are like a wrapper over a  resource that is If I have to access a resource I can access it throught that wrapper.For example:'java.lang.Integer' is a wrapper class. with resource being primitive type 'int'.Advantage of using these wrapper class is that we can use lot of utility methods available or created in Wrapper classes to do manipulation on the resource(here in this example 'int').String str = "55";Integer.parseInt(str); //using this wrapper class we can parse a string into integerInteger integer = new Integer("5");        float floatValue = integer.floatValue();//can convert a integer type to float type byte  type etc.
