If radix is not in the interval defined by Character.MIN_RADIX and Character.MAX_RADIX then 10 is used as the base for the conversion.

This method treats its argument as signed. If you want to convert an unsigned value to one of the common non-decimal bases, you may find toBinaryString(long), #toHexString, or toOctalString(long) more convenient.

public static Long valueOf (long v)

Added in API level 1

Returns a Long instance for the specified long value.

If it is not necessary to get a new Long instance, it is recommended to use this method instead of the constructor, since it maintains a cache of instances which may result in better performance.

v the long value to store in the instance.
Returns
  • a Long instance containing v.

public static Long valueOf (String string)

Added in API level 1

Parses the specified string as a signed decimal long value.
