public class GFG {
  
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // create a OptionalLong
        OptionalLong opLong = OptionalLong.of(45213246);
  
        // get value using orElseThrow()
        System.out.println("Value extracted using"

import java.util.OptionalLong;
  
public class GFG {
  
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // create a OptionalLong
        OptionalLong opLong = OptionalLong.empty();
  
        try {
  
            // try to get value from empty OptionalLong
            long value = opLong.orElseThrow();
        }
        catch (Exception e) {
