Short class decode() method

  • decode() method is available in java.lang package.
  • decode() method is used to decode the given String value into a Short value.
  • decode() method is a static method, it is accessible with the class name too and if we try to access the method with the class object then also we will not get an error.
  • decode() method may throw a NumberFormatException at the time of decoding a String to a Short.

// Java program to demonstrate the example

public class DecodeOfShortClass {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        // Variables initialization
        short s = 100;
        String str = "20";

        // Short object initialized with "short" value
        Short value1 = new Short(s);

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

        // It returns an Short object holding the short value 
        // denoted by the given String argument by calling 

        Short result = value1.decode(str);
