FloatBuffer array() method in Java With Examples

The array() method of java.nio.FloatBuffer Class is used to Return the float array that backs this buffer. Modifications to this buffer’s content will cause the returned array’s content to be modified, and vice versa. Invoke() the hasArray() method are used before invoking this method in order to ensure that this buffer has an accessible backing array

Syntax :

public final float[] array()

Return Value: This method returns the array that backs this buffer.

Throws: This method throws the ReadOnlyBufferException(If this buffer is backed by an array but is read-only)

Below program illustrates the array() method:

            float[] fbb = fb.array();
  
            // printing the FloatBuffer fb
