Java Guava | Shorts.contains() method with Examples

Shorts.contains() is a method of Shorts class in Guava library which is used to check if a value target is present as an element anywhere in the array. These both target value and array are taken as parameters to this method. It returns a boolean value stating whether the target value is present or not.

Syntax:

public static boolean contains(short[] array,
                               short target)

Parameters : This method takes two mandatory parameters:

  • array: which is an array of short values in which the target is to be searched. It can be possibly empty as well.
  • target: which is the primitive short value that has to be searched in the array.

Return Value: This method returns a boolean value stating whether the target value is present in the array or not. It returns True if the target is present.
