Advertisements


Description

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

Declaration

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

public short shortValueExact()

Parameters

NA

Return Value

This method returns the short value of the BigDecimal Object.

Exception

ArithmeticException − If this has a nonzero fractional part, or will not fit in a short.

Example

The following example shows the usage of math.BigDecimal.shortValueExact() 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 short objects
      short s1, s2;

      bg1 = new BigDecimal("235");
      bg2 = new BigDecimal("4364");

      // assign the short value of bg1 and bg2 to s1,s2 respectively
      s1 = bg1.shortValueExact();
      s2 = bg2.shortValueExact();

      String str1 = "Exact short value of " + bg1 + " is " + s1;
      String str2 = "Exact short value of " + bg2 + " is " + s2;

      // print s1,s2 values
      System.out.println( str1 );
      System.out.println( str2 );
   }
}

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

Exact short value of 235 is 235
Exact short value of 4364 is 4364
