Advertisements


Description

The java.lang.Short.compareTo() method compares two Short objects numerically.

Declaration

Following is the declaration for java.lang.Short.compareTo() method

public int compareTo(Short anotherShort)

Parameters

  • anotherShort -- This is the Short to be compared.

Return Value

This method returns the value 0 if this Short is equal to the argument Short, a value less than 0 if this Short is numerically less than argument Short; and a value greater than 0 if this Short is numerically greater than the argument Short.

Exception

  • NA

Example

The following example shows the usage of java.lang.Short.compareTo() method.

package com.tutorialspoint;

import java.lang.*;

public class ShortDemo {

   public static void main(String[] args) {
   
     // create short object and assign value to it
     short val1 = 50, val2 = 200, val3 = 50;
     Short Shortval1 = new Short(val1);
     Short Shortval2 = new Short(val2);
     Short Shortval3 = new Short(val3);
    
     // returns less than 0 if this Short is less than the argument Short
     int cmp = Shortval1.compareTo(Shortval2); 
     System.out.println("" + Shortval1 + " is less than " + Shortval2 + ",
     difference = " + cmp);

     // returns 0 if this Short is equal to the argument Short
     cmp = Shortval1.compareTo(Shortval3); 
     System.out.println("" + Shortval1 + " is equal to " + Shortval3 + ",
     difference = " + cmp);

     // returns greater than if this Short is greater than the argument Short
     cmp = Shortval2.compareTo(Shortval1); 
     System.out.println("" + Shortval2 + " is more than " + Shortval1 + ",
     difference = " + cmp);
  }
}   

Let us compile and run the above program, this will produce the following result:

50 is less than 200, difference = -150
50 is equal to 50, difference = 0
200 is more than 50, difference = 150
