Java Long intValue() Method

Java intValue() method belongs to the Long class of the java.lang and is inherited from the Number class. It is an instance method that returns the int equivalent of the Long object after a narrowing primitive conversion(Conversion of a higher data type into a lower data type).

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

Syntax:

public int intValue()  

Parameter:

No parameter is passed in this method.

Returns:

The integer equivalent of the Long object that is created after conversion.

Example 1:

Here, using the intValue() method, the Long object is converted into its primitive int equivalent.

import java.lang.Long;

public class StudyTonight
{  
    
    public static void main(String[] args) 
     {  
        //converting Long object into int
        Long x = 56L;
        int i = x.intValue();
        System.out.println(i);
    
        Long y = -90L;  
        int d = y.intValue();  
        System.out.println(d);
     }  
} 


56
-90

Example 2:

Here is a user-defined example where anyone using this code can put a value of his choice and get the equivalent int 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);  
              long i = sc.nextLong();  
              Long n = i ;  
              int val = n.intValue();  //converting Long object into int
              System.out.println("Integer Value is: " + val);  
           }
         catch(Exception e)
           {
              System.out.println("not a valid long"); 
           }
    }
}


Enter the value to be converted : 376
Integer Value is: 376
*****************************************
Enter the value to be converted : -23232
Integer Value is: -23232
*****************************************
Enter the value to be converted : 0x443
not a valid long
