IntBuffer wrap() method in Java

An int array can be wrapped into a buffer using the method wrap() in the class java.nio.IntBuffer. This method requires a single parameter i.e. the array to be wrapped into a buffer and it returns the new buffer created. If the returned buffer is modified, then the contents of the array are also similarly modified and vice versa.

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) {
try {
int[] arr = { 8, 1, 3, 7, 5 };
System.out.println("The array length is: " + arr.length);
System.out.println("Array elements are: " + Arrays.toString(arr));
IntBuffer buffer = IntBuffer.wrap(arr);
buffer.rewind();
System.out.println("The IntBuffer is: " + Arrays.toString(buffer.array()));
System.out.println("The position is: " + buffer.position());
System.out.println("The capacity is: " + buffer.capacity());
} catch (IllegalArgumentException e) {
System.out.println("Error!!! IllegalArgumentException");
}
}
}

The output of the above program is as follows −

Output

The array length is: 5
Array elements are: [8, 1, 3, 7, 5]

The IntBuffer is: [8, 1, 3, 7, 5]
The position is: 0
The capacity is: 5
