Shorts.max() is a method of Shorts class in Guava library which is used to find the greatest value present in an array. The value returned by this method is the largest short value in the specified array.

Syntax:

public static short max(short... array)

Parameters: This method takes a mandatory parameter array is a nonempty array of short values.

Return Value:This method returns a short value that is the maximum value in the specified array.

Exceptions:The method throws IllegalArgumentException if the array is empty.

Below programs illustrate the use of the above method:

Example-1 :




// Java code to show implementation of
// Guava's Shorts.max() 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, 10, 0, -5, 15, 7 };
  
        // Using Shorts.max() method to get the
        // maximum value present in the array
        System.out.println("Maximum value is : " + Shorts.max(arr));
    }
}
Output:
Maximum value is : 15

Example-2 :




// Java code to show implementation of
// Guava's Shorts.max() 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 = {};
  
        // Using Shorts.max() method to get the
        // maximum value present in the array
        // This should raise "IllegalArgumentException"
        // as the array is empty
        System.out.println("Maximum value is : " + Shorts.max(arr));
    }
}

Output:

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.IllegalArgumentException
    at com.google.common.base.Preconditions.checkArgument(Preconditions.java:108)
    at com.google.common.primitives.Shorts.max(Shorts.java:254)
    at GFG.main(File.java:19)
