The getSuffix() method of a javax.naming.CompoundName class is used to get a compound name object whose components consist of a suffix of the components in this compound name. The position from which we need to start extracting the Suffix from this compound name object is passed as a parameter. The returned compound name object and this compound name object share the same syntax. If we make any changes to this compound name that will not affect the name that is returned and vice versa.
public Name getSuffix(int posn)
Parameters: This method accepts posn which is the 0-based index of the component at which to Start. Must be in the range [0, size()].
Return value: This method returns a compound name consisting of the components at indexes in the range [posn, size()). If posn is equal to size(), an empty compound name is returned.
Exception: This method throws ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException If posn is outside the specified range.
Below programs illustrate the CompoundName.getSuffix() method:
