Short class shortValue() method

  • shortValue() method is available in java.lang package.
  • shortValue() method is used to return the value denoted by this Byte object converted to type short (by casting).
  • shortValue() method is a non-static method, it is accessible with the class object only and if we try to access the method with the class name then we will get an error.
  • shortValue() method does not throw an exception at the time of conversion from byte to short.


    public short shortValue();


  • It does not accept any parameter.

Return value:

The return type of this method is short, it returns a converted (from type byte to short) value represented by this Byte object.


// Java program to demonstrate the example 
// of shortValue() method of Byte class

public class ShortValueOfByteClass {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        // Variables initialization
        byte b1 = 10;
        byte b2 = 20;

        // It returns byte value denoted by this Byte value1 object
        // and converted to a short by calling value1.shortValue()
        Byte value1 = new Byte(b1);

        // Display value1 result
        System.out.println("value1.shortValue(): " + value1.shortValue());

        // It returns byte value denoted by this Byte value2 object
        // and converted to a short by calling value2.shortValue()
        Byte value2 = new Byte(b2);

        // Display value2 result
        System.out.println("value2.shortValue(): " + value2.shortValue());


value1.shortValue(): 10
value2.shortValue(): 20
