How do I convert array of object to array of primitive?

In the code example below we demonstrate the ArrayUtils.toPrimitive() method to convert an array of Integer object to an array of its primitive type. Besides converting array of Integer objects this method is overloaded to accept other types of object array.

package org.kodejava.example.commons.lang;

import org.apache.commons.lang.ArrayUtils;

public class ArrayObjectToPrimitiveDemo {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        // An array of Integer objects.
        Integer[] integers = {1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55};
        Boolean[] booleans = {Boolean.TRUE, Boolean.TRUE, Boolean.FALSE, Boolean.FALSE};

        // Convert array of Integer objects into array of type int.
        int[] ints = ArrayUtils.toPrimitive(integers);

        // Convert array of Boolean objects into array of type boolean.
        boolean[] bools = ArrayUtils.toPrimitive(booleans);
