Array setLong() method in Java

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

Syntax:

Array.setLong(Object []array, int index, long 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 long value that is to be set at the given index of the given array.

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

Exception: This method throws following exceptions.

  • 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.setLong() method:
