Convert String to Boolean



There’s actually two ways to do a string to boolean conversion. Either you can create an instance of the wrapper class Boolean with a string value as argument to the constructor and call the method booleanValue(), or you can do as in the example below:
call the static method parseBoolean() of the wrapper class to convert the string value to a boolean.
Either way, the string value sent in has to be either ‘true’ or ‘TRUE’ to result in a boolean with the value of true, but it doesn’t have to be ‘false’ to result in a false boolean value.
It actually makes sense that any other string value than ‘true’ or ‘TRUE’ will result in a return value that is set to false.
