Java.math.BigDecimal.byteValueExact() Method


Advertisements


Description

The java.math.BigDecimal.byteValueExact() converts the BigDecimal to a byte, checking for lost information. If this BigDecimal has a nonzero fractional part or is out of the possible range for a byte result then an ArithmeticException is thrown.

Declaration

Following is the declaration for java.math.BigDecimal.byteValueExact() method.

public byte byteValueExact()

Parameters

NA

Return Value

This method returns the byte value of the BigDecimal Object.

Exception

ArithmeticException − If BigDecimal object has a nonzero fractional part, or will not fit in a byte.

Example

The following example shows the usage of math.BigDecimal.byteValueExact() method.

package com.tutorialspoint;

import java.math.*;

public class BigDecimalDemo {

   public static void main(String[] args) {

      // create 2 BigDecimal objects
      BigDecimal bg1, bg2;

      // Create 2 byte objects
      byte i1, i2;

      // assign values to bg1 and bg2
      bg1 = new BigDecimal("-128");
      bg2 = new BigDecimal("48");

      // any BigDecimal value greater than 127 or less than -128,
      // will generate exception as it doesn't fit in byte range

      // this	method also generates exception for decimal values like 12.10

      // assign the byte value of bg1 and bg2 to i1,i2 respectively
      i1 = bg1.byteValueExact();
      i2 = bg2.byteValueExact();

      String str1 = "Exact byte value of " + bg1 + " is " + i1;
      String str2 = "Exact byte value of " + bg2 + " is " + i2;

      // print i1,i2 values
      System.out.println( str1 );
      System.out.println( str2 );
   }
}

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

Exact byte value of -128 is -128
Exact byte value of 48 is 48
