Find ASCII value of a Character in Java

Write a program in Java to find ASCII value of a Character :

ASCII or American Standard Code for Information Interchange is a character encoding standard to represent characters in computers. By using a 7 bit binary number, a character is defined. There are 128 possible characters . In decimal form, we can reprent a character from 0 to 127. In this tutorial, I will show you how to get the decimal ASCII value of a character in Java .
To find ASCII value , we have two different ways :

1. Assign the character to an integer variable
2. Typecast the character to integer.

Below program explains both approach :

public class Test {
    public static void main(String[] args) {

        Character c = 'b';

        int value = c;

        //1 : Assigning
        System.out.println("Ascii : "+value);

        //2 : Typecasting
        System.out.println("Ascii : "+(int)c);

Output :

Ascii : 98
Ascii : 98
