The following example shows the usage of math.BigInteger.max() method.

package com.tutorialspoint;

import java.math.*;

public class BigIntegerDemo {

   public static void main(String[] args) {

      // create 3 BigInteger objects
      BigInteger bi1, bi2, bi3;

      bi1 = new BigInteger("123");
      bi2 = new BigInteger("1000");

      // assign the max value of bi1, bi2 to bi3
      bi3 = bi1.max(bi2);

      String str = "Maximum Value among " + bi1 + " and "+ bi2+" is "+ bi3;

      // print the maximum value
      System.out.println( str );
   }
}

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

Maximum Value among 123 and 1000 is 1000
