Below program illustrates abs() method of BigInteger:

// Below program illustrates the abs() method
// of BigInteger 
import java.math.*;
public class GFG {
public static void main(String[] args) {
        // Create BigInteger object
        BigInteger biginteger=new BigInteger("-2300");
        // abs() method on bigInteger to find the absolute value
        // of a BigInteger
        BigInteger absolutevalue= biginteger.abs();
        // Define result
        String result ="BigInteger "+biginteger+
            " and Absolute value is "+absolutevalue;
        // Print result 
BigInteger -2300 and Absolute value is 2300
