   <TITLE>JavaScript Boolean Object Example</TITLE>
   <SCRIPT type="text/javascript">
   var boolean_object1=new Boolean(0);
   var boolean_object2=new Boolean(8);
   var boolean_object3=new Boolean(1);
   var boolean_object4=new Boolean("");
   var boolean_object5=new Boolean("codescracker");
   var boolean_object6=new Boolean('False');
   var boolean_object7=new Boolean(null);
   var boolean_object8=new Boolean(NaN);

   document.write("The value 0 is boolean "+boolean_object1+"<br>");
   document.write("The value 8 is boolean "+boolean_object2+"<br>");
   document.write("The value 1 is boolean "+boolean_object3+"<br>");
   document.write("An empty string is boolean "+boolean_object4+"<br>");
   document.write("The String \"codescracker\" is boolean "+boolean_object5+"<br>");
   document.write("The String 'False' is boolean "+boolean_object6+"<br>");
   document.write("null is boolean "+boolean_object7+"<br>");
   document.write("NaN is boolean "+boolean_object8);


Here is the output produced by the above JavaScript Boolean Object example.
