ShortBuffer in java, Define the order of byte in short buffer.

In this tutorial, we will see how to define the order of byte in short buffer.

ShortBuffer API:

The java.nio.ShortBuffer class extends java.nio.Buffer class. It provides the following methods:

Return type Method Description
static ShortBuffer wrap(short [] array)  The wrap(....) method wrapping an existing short array into short buffer.
 abstract ByteOrder order() The order(..) method returns order of bytes used by
short buffer.

ByteBuffer API:

The java.nio.ByteBuffer class extends java.nio.Buffer class. It provides the following methods:

Return type Method Description
static ByteBuffer wrap([] array) The wrap(....) method wrapping an existing byte array into byte buffer.
 abstrtact ShortBuffer  asShortBuffer() The asShortBuffer() method returns short buffer based on byte buffer.

  Code

import java.nio.*;
import java.nio.ShortBuffer;

public class ByteOrder{
  public static void main(String[] args) {
    byte[] array=new byte[]{3,4,65};
    ByteBuffer byteBuff=ByteBuffer.wrap(array);
    ShortBuffer shortBuff=byteBuff.asShortBuffer();
System.out.println("Byte order of short buffer : "
  + shortBuff.order
());
    short[] arr=new short[] {3,4,65};
    ShortBuffer shortBuff1=ShortBuffer.wrap(arr);
System.out.println("Byte order of short buffer : "
    + shortBuff1.order
());  
  }
}

Output

C:\>java ByteOrder
Byte order of short buffer : BIG_ENDIAN
Byte order of short buffer : LITTLE_ENDIAN
