[Fix] java: integer number too large compilation error


java integer number too large
Code:
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        long number = 10000000000;
        System.out.print(number);
    }
Error:
java: integer number too large
Fix:

If you are dealing with numbers in your Java program and it gets too long! (over 2,147,483,647 to be precise) then it a type long and not int so you need to suffix the letter capital L or lower case l to fix the compilation error.

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        long number = 10000000000L;
        System.out.print(number);
    }
