// Java program to demonstrate
// remaining() method
  
import java.nio.*;
import java.util.*;
  
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // Declare and initialize the byte array
        byte[] bb = { 10, 20, 30 };
  
        // wrap the byte array into ByteBuffer
        // using wrap() method
        ByteBuffer byteBuffer = ByteBuffer.wrap(bb);
  
        // Typecast ByteBuffer to Buffer
        Buffer buffer = (Buffer)byteBuffer;
  
        // get the number of element present in the Buffer
        // using remaining() method
        int element = buffer.remaining();
  
        // print the buffer
        System.out.println("Remaining element in buffer : "
                           + element);
    }
}
