Short class byteValue() method

  • byteValue() method is available in java.lang package.
  • byteValue() method is used to return the value denoted by this Short object converted to type byte (by casting).
  • byteValue() 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.
  • byteValue() method does not throw an exception at the time of conversion from Short to byte.


    public byte byteValue();


  • It does not accept any parameter.

Return value:

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


// Java program to demonstrate the example 
// of byteValue() method of Short class

public class ByteValueOfShortClass {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        // Variables initialization
        short s1 = 100;
        short s2 = 200;

        // It returns short value denoted by this Short ob1 object
        // and converted to a byte by calling ob1.byteValue()
        Short ob1 = new Short(s1);

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

        // It returns short value denoted by this Short ob2 object
        // and converted to a byte by calling ob2.byteValue()
        Short ob2 = new Short(s2);

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


ob1.byteValue(): 100
ob2.byteValue(): -56
