FloatBuffer slice() method in Java with Examples

  • Last Updated : 31 Aug, 2021

The slice() method of java.nio.FloatBuffer Class is used to creates a new float buffer whose content is a shared subsequence of the given buffer’s content.
The content of the new buffer will start at this buffer’s current position. Changes to this buffer’s content will be visible in the new buffer, and vice versa. The two buffers’ position, limit, and mark values will be independent.
The new buffer’s position will be zero, its capacity and its limit will be the number of floats remaining in this buffer, and its mark will be undefined. The new buffer will be direct if, and only if, this buffer is direct, and it will be read-only if, and only if, this buffer is read-only.
 

Syntax :  

public abstract FloatBuffer slice()

Return Value: This method returns the new float buffer.
Below are the examples to illustrate the slice() method:
Examples 1:

Java




// Java program to demonstrate
// slice() method
 
import java.nio.*;
import java.util.*;
 
public class GFG {
 
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
 
        // Declaring the capacity of the FloatBuffer
        int capacity = 10;
 
        // Creating the FloatBuffer
        try {
 
            // creating object of floatbuffer
            // and allocating size capacity
            FloatBuffer fb1 = FloatBuffer.allocate(capacity);
 
            // putting the value in floatbuffer
            fb1.put(8.56F);
            fb1.put(9.61F);
 
            // print the FloatBuffer
            System.out.println("Original FloatBuffer: "
                               + Arrays.toString(fb1.array()));
 
            // print the FloatBuffer position
            System.out.println("\nposition:  " + fb1.position());
 
            // print the FloatBuffer capacity
            System.out.println("\ncapacity:  " + fb1.capacity());
 
            // Creating a shared subsequence buffer of given FloatBuffer
            // using slice() method
            FloatBuffer fb2 = fb1.slice();
 
            // print the shared subsequence buffer
            System.out.println("\nshared subsequence FloatBuffer: "
                               + Arrays.toString(fb2.array()));
 
            // print the FloatBuffer position
            System.out.println("\nposition:  " + fb2.position());
 
            // print the FloatBuffer capacity
            System.out.println("\ncapacity:  " + fb2.capacity());
        }
 
        catch (IllegalArgumentException e) {
 
            System.out.println("IllegalArgumentException catched");
        }
 
        catch (ReadOnlyBufferException e) {
 
            System.out.println("ReadOnlyBufferException catched");
        }
    }
}
Output
Original FloatBuffer: [8.56, 9.61, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0]

position:  2

capacity:  10

shared subsequence FloatBuffer: [8.56, 9.61, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0]

position:  0

capacity:  8

position:  4
