Being negative Perhaps you’re wondering how the hexadecimal value CAFEBABE could be represented in decimal as -889275714, not 3405691582. Like Java, JavaFX Script uses a 32-bit signed Integer type, meaning the lower 31 binary digits of each integer represent its value and the most significant digit stores whether the value is positive or negative. Because the hex value CAFEBABE uses all 32 bits, its 32nd bit causes JFX to see it as negative in many circumstances. If we tried to store the number 3405691582 in an integer, the compiler would inform us it’s too big.

6 Sequences, behind the scenes I hinted briefly in the introduction to sequences of how they’re not really arrays. Indeed, I am indebted to Sun engineer Jasper Potts, who pointed out the folly of drawing too close an analogy between JFX sequences and Java arrays and collections. Behind the scenes, sequences use a host of different strategies to form the data you and I actually work with. Sequences are immutable (they cannot be changed; modifications result in new sequence objects), but this does not make them slow or inefficient.
