Java Guava | Ints.compare() method with Examples

  • Difficulty Level : Medium
  • Last Updated : 26 Jul, 2021

Ints.compare() is a method of Ints class in Guava library which is used to compare the two given int values. It takes two integers as parameters that are to be compared. It returns a comparator value based on the comparison of the specified integers.
Syntax : 
 

public static int compare(int a, int b)

Parameters: This method takes two parameters: 
 

  • a: which is the first integer value to be compared.
  • b: which is the second integer value to be compared.

Return Value: This method returns an int value. It returns: 
 

  • 0 if ‘a’ is equal to ‘b’,
  • a positive value ‘a’ is greater than ‘b’,
  • a negative value ‘a’ is lesser than ‘b’

Below programs illustrate the use of the above method:
Example-1: 
 

Java




// Java code to show implementation of
// Guava's Ints.compare() method
import com.google.common.primitives.Ints;
import java.util.List;
 
class GFG {
    // Driver's code
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        // Using Ints.compare() method to
        // compare the two specified int
        // values in the standard way
        // This should return positive number
        // as a is greater than b
        System.out.println(Ints.compare(5, 3));
    }
}
Output: 
1

 

Example-2 : 
 

Java




// Java code to show implementation of
// Guava's Ints.compare() method
import com.google.common.primitives.Ints;
import java.util.List;
 
class GFG {
    // Driver's code
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        // Using Ints.compare() method to
        // compare the two specified int
        // values in the standard way
        // This should return 0 as a == b
        System.out.println(Ints.compare(2, 2));
    }
}
Output: 
0
