# Java - Bitwise Operators Example

The following program is a simple example that demonstrates the bitwise operators. Copy and paste the following Java program in Test.java file and compile and run this program −

## Example

```public class Test {

public static void main(String args[]) {
int a = 60;	/* 60 = 0011 1100 */
int b = 13;	/* 13 = 0000 1101 */
int c = 0;

c = a & b;        /* 12 = 0000 1100 */
System.out.println("a & b = " + c );

c = a | b;        /* 61 = 0011 1101 */
System.out.println("a | b = " + c );

c = a ^ b;        /* 49 = 0011 0001 */
System.out.println("a ^ b = " + c );

c = ~a;           /*-61 = 1100 0011 */
System.out.println("~a = " + c );

c = a << 2;       /* 240 = 1111 0000 */
System.out.println("a << 2 = " + c );

c = a >> 2;       /* 15 = 1111 */
System.out.println("a >> 2  = " + c );

c = a >>> 2;      /* 15 = 0000 1111 */
System.out.println("a >>> 2 = " + c );
}
}
```

This will produce the following result −

## Output

```a & b = 12
a | b = 61
a ^ b = 49
~a = -61
a << 2 = 240
a >> 2  = 15
a >>> 2 = 15
