CharBuffer array() method in Java



A char array for the buffer can be obtained using the method array() in the class java.nio.CharBuffer. If the returned array is modified, then the contents of the buffer are also similarly modified and vice versa. If the buffer is read-only, then the ReadOnlyBufferException is thrown.

A program that demonstrates this is given as follows −

Example

 Live Demo

import java.nio.*;
import java.util.*;
public class Demo {
   public static void main(String[] args) {
      int n = 5;
      try {
         CharBuffer buffer = CharBuffer.allocate(n);
         buffer.put('A');
         buffer.put('P');
         buffer.put('P');
         buffer.put('L');
         buffer.put('E');
         buffer.rewind();
         char[] arr = buffer.array();
         System.out.println("The CharBuffer is: " + Arrays.toString(arr));
      } catch (IllegalArgumentException e) {
         System.out.println("Error!!! IllegalArgumentException");
      } catch (ReadOnlyBufferException e) {
         System.out.println("Error!!! ReadOnlyBufferException");
      }
   }
}

Output

The CharBuffer is: [A, P, P, L, E]
