java.lang.Long.byteValue() is a built-in function in Java that returns the value of this Long as a byte. Syntax:
public byte byteValue()
Parameters: The function does not accept any parameter.
Return :
This method returns the numeric value 
represented by this object after conversion to byte type.
Examples:
Input : 12
Output : 12

Input : 1023
Output : -1
The program below illustrates the java.lang.Long.byteValue() function: Program 1 :
// Java program that demonstrates the use of
// Long.byteValue() function
  
// include lang package
import java.lang.*;
  
public class GFG {
  
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        Long value = 1023l;
  
        // returns the value of Long as a byte
        byte byteValue = value.byteValue();
        System.out.println("Byte Value of num = " + byteValue);
  
        // 2nd example
        value = 12l;
        byteValue = value.byteValue();
        System.out.println("Byte Value of num = " + byteValue);
    }
}

                    
Output:
Byte Value of num = -1
Byte Value of num = 12
Program 2 : Demonstrates the byte value of a negative number
// Java program that demonstrates the use of
// Long.byteValue() function
// negative number
  
// include lang package
import java.lang.*;
  
public class GFG {
  
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        Long value = -1023l;
  
        // returns the value of Long as a byte
        byte byteValue = value.byteValue();
        System.out.println("Byte Value of num = " + byteValue);
  
        // 2nd example
        value = -12l;
        byteValue = value.byteValue();
        System.out.println("Byte Value of num = " + byteValue);
    }
}

                    
Output:
Byte Value of num = 1
Byte Value of num = -12
Program 3 : When a decimal value is passed in argument.
// Java program that demonstrates the use of
// Long.byteValue() function
// decimal number
  
// include lang package
import java.lang.*;
  
public class GFG {
  
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        Long value = 11.24;
  
        // returns the value of Long as a byte
        byte byteValue = value.byteValue();
        System.out.println("Byte Value of num = " + byteValue);
    }
}

                    
Output:
prog.java:13: error: incompatible types: double cannot be converted to Long
        Long value = 11.24;
Program 4 : When a string value is passed in argument.
// Java program that demonstrates the use of
// Long.byteValue() function
// string number
  
// include lang package
import java.lang.*;
  
public class GFG {
  
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        Long value = "24";
  
        // returns the value of Long as a byte
        byte byteValue = value.byteValue();
        System.out.println("Byte Value of num = " + byteValue);
    }
}

                    
Output:
prog.java:13: error: incompatible types: String cannot be converted to Long
        Long value = "24";
