# IntBuffer get() method in Java

Java 8Object Oriented ProgrammingProgramming

The value at the current position of the buffer is read and then incremented using the method get() in the class java.nio.IntBuffer. This method returns the value that is at the current buffer position. Also, the BufferUnderflowException is thrown if underflow situation occurs.

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 {
IntBuffer buffer = IntBuffer.allocate(n);
buffer.put(8);
buffer.put(1);
buffer.put(3);
buffer.put(7);
buffer.put(5);
buffer.rewind();
System.out.println("The IntBuffer is: " + Arrays.toString(buffer.array()));
int val1 = buffer.get();
System.out.println("\nThe value at current position of IntBuffer is: " + val1);
int val2 = buffer.get();
System.out.println("The value at next position of IntBuffer is: " + val2);
} catch (IllegalArgumentException e) {
System.out.println("Error!!! IllegalArgumentException");
} catch (BufferUnderflowException e) {
System.out.println("Error!!! BufferUnderflowException");
}
}
}

The output of the above program is as follows −

## Output

The IntBuffer is: [8, 1, 3, 7, 5]
The value at current position of IntBuffer is: 8
The value at next position of IntBuffer is: 1
