ShortBuffer array() Method in Java with Examples

The array() method of java.nio.ShortBuffer is used to return the short array that backs this buffer(optional).
Modifications to this buffer’s content will cause the returned array’s content to be modified, and vice versa.
Invoke the hasArray method before invoking this method in order to ensure that this buffer has an accessible backing array.

Syntax:

public final short[] array()

Parameters: The method does not take any parameters.



Return Value: The method returns the array that backs the buffer.

Exception:

  • ReadOnlyBufferException, If the buffer is backed by an array but is read-only
  • UnsupportedOperationException, If this buffer is not backed by an accessible array
