Java Integer shortValue() Method

Java shortValue() method belongs to the Integer class of the java.lang package. This method returns the short equivalent of the Integer object after a narrowing primitive conversion(conversion of higher data type into lower data type).

In short, this method is used to convert an Integer object into a short value.

Syntax:

public short shortValue()  

Parameter:

No parameter is passed in this method.

Returns:

The numerical equivalent of the object of a short type is created after conversion.

Example 1:

Here, using the shortValue() method and integer values are converted into its numerical short equivalent.

import java.lang.Integer;

public class StudyTonight
{  
    public static void main(String[] args) 
    {  
          //converting integer object into short
          Integer x = 99;
          short i=x.shortValue();
          System.out.println(" Equivalent short value is " +i);
          
          Integer y = 23;  
          short d = y.shortValue();  
          System.out.println(" Equivalent short value is " +d);
    }  
}


Equivalent short value is 99
Equivalent short value is 23

Example 2:

Here is a user-defined example where anyone using this code can put a value of his choice and get the equivalent short value.

import java.util.Scanner;  
public class StudyTonight
{  
    public static void main(String[] args) 
    {  
         try
         {
              System.out.print("Enter the value to be converted : ");  
              Scanner sc = new Scanner(System.in);  
              int i = sc.nextInt();  
              Integer n = i ;  
              short val = n.shortValue();  
              System.out.println("Short Value is: " + val);  
         }
         catch(Exception e)
         {
              System.out.println("not a valid integer"); 
         }
    }
}


Enter the value to be converted : 54
Short Value is: 54
************************************************
Enter the value to be converted : 0x559
not a valid integer
