java.lang.Short Class

Short Class in Java

The Short class wraps the value of primitive data type short into Short object. An object of type Short contains a single field whose type is short. In other words the wrapper classes create objects for primitive data types. The wrapper classes are Boolean, Byte, Character, Short, Integer, Float, Long and Double.

Java Short class provides several useful methods for converting a short to a String and a String to a short, as well as other constants and methods.

java.lang.Short Class Example

/* Java Short Class Example */
/* Save with file name ShortExample.java */

public class ShortExample
{
	public static void main(String args[])
	{
		//JAVA SHORT DECLARATION

		Short b;

		//PRIMITIVE short DECLARATION AND VALUE ASSIGNMENT

		short a = 101;

		//MEMORY ALLOCATION FOR JAVA SHORT

		b = new Short(a);

		//JAVA SHORT CLASS OUTPUT

		System.out.println("Java Short Class Example");

		//RETURNS byte PRIMITIVE DATA TYPE

		System.out.println("byte Value is : "+ b.byteValue());

		//RETURNS short PRIMITIVE DATA TYPE

		System.out.println("short Value is : "+ b.shortValue());

		//RETURNS double PRIMITIVE DATA TYPE

		System.out.println("double Value is : "+ b.doubleValue());

		//RETURNS float PRIMITIVE DATA TYPE

		System.out.println("float Value is : "+ b.floatValue());

		//RETURNS int PRIMITIVE DATA TYPE

		System.out.println("int Value is : "+ b.intValue());

		//RETURNS long PRIMITIVE DATA TYPE

		System.out.println("long Value is : "+ b.longValue());
	}
}
				    

java.lang.Short Class Example 2

/* Java Short Class Example 2 */
/* Save with file name ShortExample2.java */

public class ShortExample2
{
	public static void main(String args[])
	{
		//JAVA SHORT DECLARATION

		Short b, b2;

		//PRIMITIVE short DECLARATION AND VALUE ASSIGNMENT

		short a = 101;

		//MEMORY ALLOCATION FOR JAVA SHORT

		b = new Short(a);

		b2 = new Short("102");

		//JAVA SHORT CLASS OUTPUT

		System.out.println("Java Short Class Example");

		System.out.println("b Value is : "+ b.shortValue());

		System.out.println("b2 Value is : "+ b2.shortValue());

		System.out.println("b compareTo b2 : "+ b.compareTo(b2));

		System.out.println("b equals b2 : "+ b.equals(b2));
	}
}
				    

Following Java Short class example you can learn how to use static methods of Java Short Class. If you use static methods you need not to create the class instance. You can call static methods using the class name as reference.

java.lang.Short Class Example 3

/* Java Short Class Example 3 */
/* Save with file name ShortExample3.java */

public class ShortExample3
{
	public static void main(String args[])
	{
		//PRIMITIVE short DECLARATION AND VALUE ASSIGNMENT

		short a = 101;

		//JAVA SHORT CLASS STATIC METHODS USAGE

		System.out.println("Java Short Class Example");

		//RETURN Short OBJECT WITH THE SPECIFIED PRIMITIVE short DATA TYPE

		System.out.println("valueOf : "+ Short.valueOf(a));

		//RETURN Short OBJECT WITH THE SPECIFIED
		//PRIMITIVE short DATA TYPE AS String

		System.out.println("valueOf : "+ Short.valueOf("103"));

		//RETURN PRIMITIVE short DATA TYPE WITH THE SPECIFIED
		//PRIMITIVE short DATA TYPE AS String

		System.out.println("parseShort : "+ Short.parseShort("105"));
	}
