LongBuffer arrayOffset() method in Java

The arrayOffset() method of java.nio.LongBuffer class is used to return the offset within the buffer’s backing array of the first element of the buffer. It means that if this buffer is backed by an array, then buffer position p corresponds to array index p + arrayOffset().

In order to check whether this buffer has a backing array, hasArray() method can be used. It ensures that this buffer has an accessible backing array.

Syntax :



public final Long arrayOffset()

Return Value: This method returns the offset within this buffer’s array of the first element of the buffer.

Exception: This method throws ReadOnlyBufferException if this buffer is backed by an array but is read-only

Below program illustrate the arrayOffset() method.

Output:

LongBuffer: [8, 0, 9, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0]

Output:

Try to prLong the array offset of read only buffer
Exception throws: java.nio.ReadOnlyBufferException
