Constructor Detail

Short

public Short(short value)
Constructs a Short object initialized to the specified short value.
Parameters:
value - the initial value of the Short

Short

public Short(String s)
      throws NumberFormatException
Constructs a Short object initialized to the value specified by the String parameter. The radix is assumed to be 10.
Parameters:

Method Detail

toString

public static String toString(short s)
Returns a new String object representing the specified Short. The radix is assumed to be 10.
Parameters:
s - the short to be converted
Returns:
The String that represents the specified short in radix 10.

parseShort

public static short parseShort(String s)
                        throws NumberFormatException
Assuming the specified String represents a short, returns that short's value. Throws an exception if the String cannot be parsed as a short. The radix is assumed to be 10.
Parameters:
s - the String containing the short
Returns:
short the value represented by the specified string
Throws:
NumberFormatException - If the string does not contain a parsable short.

parseShort

public static short parseShort(String s,
                               int radix)
                        throws NumberFormatException
Assuming the specified String represents a short, returns that short's value. Throws an exception if the String cannot be parsed as a short.
Parameters:
s - the String containing the short
radix - the radix to be used
Returns:
The short value represented by the specified string in the specified radix.
Throws:
NumberFormatException - If the String does not contain a parsable short.

valueOf

public static Short valueOf(String s,
                            int radix)
                     throws NumberFormatException
Assuming the specified String represents a short, returns a new Short object initialized to that value. Throws an exception if the String cannot be parsed as a short.
Parameters:
s - the String containing the integer
radix - the radix to be used
Returns:
The Short value represented by the specified string in the specified radix.
Throws:
NumberFormatException - If the String does not contain a parsable short.

valueOf

public static Short valueOf(String s)
                     throws NumberFormatException
Assuming the specified String represents a short, returns a new Short object initialized to that value. Throws an exception if the String cannot be parsed as a short.
Parameters:
s - the String containing the integer
Returns:
Short of the value represented by the specified string in radix 10.
Throws:
NumberFormatException - If the String does not contain a parsable short.

decode

public static Short decode(String nm)
                    throws NumberFormatException
Decodes a String into a Short. Accepts decimal, hexadecimal, and octal numbers, in the following formats:
     [-]        decimal constant
     [-] 0x     hex constant
     [-] #      hex constant
     [-] 0      octal constant
 
The constant following an (optional) negative sign and/or "radix specifier" is parsed as by the Short.parseShort method with the specified radix (10, 8 or 16). This constant must be positive or a NumberFormatException will result. The result is made negative if first character of the specified String is the negative sign. No whitespace characters are permitted in the String.
Parameters:
nm - the String to decode.
Returns:
the Short represented by the specified string.
Throws:
NumberFormatException - if the String does not contain a parsable short.

the numeric value represented by this object after conversion to type int.

longValue

public long longValue()
Returns the value of this Short as a long.
Overrides:

Returns:
the numeric value represented by this object after conversion to type long.

floatValue

public float floatValue()
Returns the value of this Short as a float.
Overrides:

Returns:
a string representation of the object.

hashCode

public int hashCode()
Returns a hashcode for this Short.
Overrides:
hashCode in class Object
Following copied from class: java.lang.Object
Returns:
a hash code value for this object.

equals

public boolean equals(Object obj)
Compares this object to the specified object.
Overrides:
equals in class Object
Parameters:
obj - the object to compare with
Returns:
true if the objects are the same; false otherwise.

compareTo

public int compareTo(Short anotherShort)
Compares two Shorts numerically.
Parameters:
anotherShort - the Short to be compared.
Returns:
the value 0 if the argument Short is equal to this Short; a value less than 0 if this Short is numerically less than the Short argument; and a value greater than 0 if this Short is numerically greater than the Short argument (signed comparison).
Since:
1.2

compareTo

public int compareTo(Object o)
Compares this Short to another Object. If the Object is a Short, this function behaves like compareTo(Short). Otherwise, it throws a ClassCastException (as Shorts are comparable only to other Shorts).
Specified by:
compareTo in interface Comparable
Parameters:
o - the Object to be compared.
Returns:
the value 0 if the argument is a Short numerically equal to this Short; a value less than 0 if the argument is a Short numerically greater than this Short; and a value greater than 0 if the argument is a Short numerically less than this Short.
