The toArray() method of Longs Class in the Guava library is used to convert the long values, passed as the parameter to this method, into a Long Array. These long values are passed as a Collection to this method. This method returns a Long array. Syntax:
public static long[] toArray(Collection<? extends Number> collection)
Parameters: This method accepts a mandatory parameter collection which is the collection of long values to be converted in to a Long array. Return Value: This method returns a long array containing the same values as a collection, in the same order. Exceptions: This method throws NullPointerException if the passed collection or any of its elements is null. Below programs illustrate the use of toArray() method: Example 1 :
// Java code to show implementation of
// Guava's Longs.toArray() method
  
import com.google.common.primitives.Longs;
import java.util.Arrays;
import java.util.List;
  
class GFG {
  
    // Driver's code
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // Creating a List of Longs
        List<Long> myList
            = Arrays.asList(1L, 2L, 3L, 4L, 5L);
  
        // Using Longs.toArray() method to convert
        // a List or Set of Long to an array of Long
        long[] arr = Longs.toArray(myList);
  
        // Displaying an array containing each
        // value of collection,
        // converted to a long value
        System.out.println(Arrays.toString(arr));
    }
}

                    
Output:
[1, 2, 3, 4, 5]
Example 2 :
// Java code to show implementation of
// Guava's Longs.toArray() method
  
import com.google.common.primitives.Longs;
import java.util.Arrays;
import java.util.List;
  
class GFG {
  
    // Driver's code
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        try {
            // Creating a List of Longs
            List<Long> myList
                = Arrays.asList(2L, 4L, null);
  
            // Using Longs.toArray() method
            // to convert a List or Set of Long
            // to an array of Long.
            // This should raise "NullPointerException"
            // as the collection contains "null"
            // as an element
            long[] arr = Longs.toArray(myList);
  
            // Displaying an array containing each
            // value of collection,
            // converted to a long value
            System.out.println(Arrays
                                   .toString(arr));
        }
        catch (Exception e) {
            System.out.println(e);
        }
    }
}

                    
Output:
java.lang.NullPointerException
