Array setInt() method in Java

  • Last Updated : 30 Nov, 2018

The java.lang.reflect.Array.setInt() is an inbuilt method in Java and is used to set a specified int value to a specified index of a given object array.

Syntax:

Array.setInt(Object []array, int index, int value)

Parameter:

  • array: This is an array of type Object which is to be updated.
  • index: This is the index of the array which is to be updated.
  • value: This is the int value that is to be set at the given index of the given array.

Return Value: This is a void type method this doesn’t returns any value. The update reflects upon the Object array passed as the argument.

Exception : This method throws following exception.



  • NullPointerException – when the array is null.
  • IllegalArgumentException – when the given object array is not an Array.
  • ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException – if the given index is not in the range of the size of the array.

    Below programs illustrate the Array.setInt() method:

    Program 1 :




    // Java code to demonstrate setInt() method of Array class
    import java.lang.reflect.Array;
    public class GfG {
        // main method
        public static void main(String[] args)
        {
      
            // Declaring and defining Integer array
            int b[] = { 1, 2, 3, 4 };
            System.out.print("Befor Set : ");
            // printing the array
            for (Integer x : b) {
                System.out.print(x + " ");
            }
            int value = 10;
            // set method of class Array
            Array.setInt(b, 1, value);
      
            System.out.print("\nAfter Set : ");
            // printing array
            for (Integer x : b) {
                System.out.print(x + " ");
            }
        }
    }

    Output

    Befor Set : 1 2 3 4 
    After Set : 1 10 3 4 
    

    Program 2 : To demonstrate java.lang.NullPointerException.




    // Java code to demonstrate setInt() method of Array class
    import java.lang.reflect.Array;
    public class GfG {
        // main method
        public static void main(String[] args)
        {
      
            // Declaring and defining Integer array to null
            Integer b[] = null;
            try {
                Array.setInt(b, 5, 10);
            }
            catch (Exception e) {
                System.out.println("Exception : " + e);
            }
        }
    }

    Output

    Exception : java.lang.NullPointerException
    

    Program 3 : To demonstrate java.lang.ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException.




    // Java code to demonstrate setInt() method of Array class
    import java.lang.reflect.Array;
    public class GfG {
        // main method
        public static void main(String[] args)
        {
      
            // Declaring and defining Integer array
            Integer b[] = { 1, 2, 3, 4 };
            try {
                Array.setInt(b, 5, 10);
            }
            catch (Exception e) {
                System.out.println("Exception : " + e);
            }
        }
    }

    Output

    Exception : java.lang.ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException
    

    Program 4 : To demonstrate java.lang.IllegalArgumentException.




    // Java code to demonstrate setInt() method of Array class
    import java.lang.reflect.Array;
    public class GfG {
        // main method
        public static void main(String[] args)
        {
      
            // Declaring and defining Integer variable
            Integer b = 1;
            try {
                Array.setInt(b, 5, 10);
            }
            catch (Exception e) {
                System.out.println("Exception : " + e);
            }
        }
    }

    Output

    Exception : java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Argument is not an array
