I personnaly think that Int, Double, Long, Character, Int are classes 
which should have never existed in Java. They have been created a long 
time ago in purpose, because they wanted int, long, float, boolean, etc 
to be native types for performance reasons. This leads to complexity, 
and have abused a lot of newbies (me included when I started in java 
back in 1996). They suddenly decided that auto-boxing was needed just 
because M$ did it in C#.

Now, some may object that those classes are immutable, and this was the 
reason they were created.

Ok, now, I would say that you should simply store int, long, float, etc 
instead of the associated classes.
