Java.lang.Short Class

Java.lang.Short Class

Introduction

The java.lang.Short class wraps a value of primitive type short in an object. An object of type Short contains a single field whose type is short.

Class declaration

Following is the declaration for java.lang.Short class:

public final class Short
  extends Number
     implements Comparable<Short>

Field

Following are the fields for java.lang.Short class:

  • static short MAX_VALUE — This is the constant holding the maximum value a short can have, 215-1.
  • static short MIN_VALUE — This is the constant holding the minimum value a short can have, -215.
  • static int SIZE — This is the number of bits used to represent a short value in two’s complement binary form.
  • static Class<Short> TYPE — This is the Class instance representing the primitive type short.

Class constructors

S.N.Constructor & Description
1Short(short value)

This constructs a newly allocated Short object that represents the specified short value.

2Short(String s)

This constructs a newly allocated Short object that represents the short value indicated by the String parameter.

10static short parseShort(String s)

This method parses the string argument as a signed decimal short.

11static short parseShort(String s, int radix)

This method parses the string argument as a signed short in the radix specified by the second argument.

12static short reverseBytes(short i)

This method returns the value obtained by reversing the order of the bytes in the two’s complement representation of the specified short value.

13short shortValue()

This method returns the value of this Short as a short.

14String toString()
