public static int toLowerCase(int codePoint)

Example

The following example shows the usage of lang.Character.toLowerCase() method.

package com.tutorialspoint;

import java.lang.*;

public class CharacterDemo {

   public static void main(String[] args) {

      // create 4 int primitives
      int cp1, cp2, cp3, cp4;

      // assign values to cp1, cp2
      cp1 = 0x0057;
      cp2 = 0x2153;

      // assign lowercase of cp1, cp2 to cp3, cp4
      cp3 = Character.toLowerCase(cp1);
      cp4 = Character.toLowerCase(cp2);

      String str1 = "Lowercase equivalent of cp1 is " + cp3;
      String str2 = "Lowercase equivalent of cp2 is " + cp4;

      // print cp3, cp4 values
      System.out.println( str1 );
      System.out.println( str2 );
   }
}

Let us compile and run the above program, this will produce the following result:

Lowercase equivalent of cp1 is 119
Lowercase equivalent of cp2 is 8531
