Java bigdecimal shortValue example


In this example working of  Java bigdecimal class shortValue method  is demonstrated.  Method return type is short therefore it will return only short values. Method converts bigdecimal in to short data type value. In the example one bigdecimal object  mass is created.   Method throws NumberFormatException if it finds any other value to be converted in to short  other than integers and decimals. Method also throws ArithmeticException if the value contains non-zero fractional part.

Syntax for using the method: public short shortValue() 

short sh = this.object.shortValue();

import java.math.BigDecimal;

public class Java_bigdecimal_shortValue {
  public static void main(String args[]) {

  BigDecimal mass = new BigDecimal(2134);
  short shortValue;
  shortValue = mass.shortValueExact();
  System.out.println("BigDecimal value : " +
  "" + mass
  "\nmethod converted short value" +
  " : " + shortValue);

  float valuef = 3654;
  mass = new BigDecimal(valuef);
  System.out.println("\nmass object value : " +
  "" + mass + "\nmethod generated " +
  "short value : " +
  "" + mass.shortValue());

  double valueD = 1444;
  Double doubleObj = new Double(valueD);
  mass = new BigDecimal(doubleObj);
  System.out.println("\nmass object value :" +
  " " + mass  + "\nmethod generated " +
  "short value : " + mass.shortValue());
