Short class reverseBytes() method

  • reverseBytes() method is available in java.lang package.
  • reverseBytes() method is used to returns the value generated by reversing the order of bytes in binary 2's complement denotation of the given argument.
  • reverseBytes() 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.

    public static short reverseBytes (short value);


  • short value – represents the short value to be parsed in bytes.

Return value:

The return type of this method is Short, it returns a short value generated by reversing the bytes order in 2's complement of the given short value.


// Java program to demonstrate the example 
// of reverseBytes(short value) method of Short class

public class ReverseBytesOfShortClass {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        short value = 1296;

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

        // It returns the value generated by reversing 
        // the order of the bytes in the given argument value 
        // by calling Short.reverseBytes(value)
        System.out.println("Short.reverseBytes(value): " + Short.reverseBytes(value));


value: 1296
Short.reverseBytes(value): 4101
