Java Guava | Shorts.contains() method with Examples
  • Last Updated : 30 Jan, 2019

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.

Below programs illustrate the use of the above method:



Example-1 :




// Java code to show implementation of
// Guava's Shorts.contains() method
import com.google.common.primitives.Shorts;
import java.util.Arrays;
  
class GFG {
    // Driver's code
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        // Creating a short array
        short[] arr = { 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 };
  
        short target = 3;
  
        // Using Shorts.contains() method to search
        // for an element in the array. The method
        // returns true if element is found, else
        // returns false
        if (Shorts.contains(arr, target))
            System.out.println("Target is present in the array");
        else
            System.out.println("Target is not present in the array");
    }
}
Output:
Target is present in the array

Example 2 :




// Java code to show implementation of
// Guava's Shorts.contains() method
import com.google.common.primitives.Shorts;
import java.util.Arrays;
  
class GFG {
    // Driver's code
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        // Creating a short array
        short[] arr = { 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 };
  
        short target = 7;
  
        // Using Shorts.contains() method to search
        // for an element in the array. The method
        // returns true if element is found, else
        // returns false
        if (Shorts.contains(arr, target))
            System.out.println("Target is present in the array");
        else
            System.out.println("Target is not present in the array");
    }
}
Output:
Target is not present in the array
