Long class shortValue() method

  • shortValue() method is available in java.lang package.
  • shortValue() method is used to return the value denoted by this Long object converted to type short (by casting).
  • shortValue() method is a non-static method, it is accessible with 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 long 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 long to short) value represented by this Long object.


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

public class ShortValueOfLongClass {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        // Variables initialization
        long l1 = 10;
        long l2 = 20;

        // It returns long value denoted by this Long ob1 object
        // and converted to a short by calling ob1.shortValue()
        Long ob1 = new Long(l1);

        // Display ob1 result
        System.out.println("ob1.shortValue(): " + ob1.shortValue());

        // It returns long value denoted by this Long ob2 object
        // and converted to a short by calling ob2.shortValue()
        Long ob2 = new Long(l2);

        // Display ob2 result
        System.out.println("ob2.shortValue(): " + ob2.shortValue());


ob1.shortValue(): 10
ob2.shortValue(): 20
