System.out.println("---Data Conversion from short type to long type---");
System.out.println("Enter short type value: ");
// Read short type data
short myshort = Short.parseShort(buffreader.readLine());
// Convert short type data to long type
long mylong = (long) (myshort);
System.out.println("Converted value from short type to long type is : " + mylong);
