ShortBuffer order() Method in Java with Examples

  • Last Updated : 20 Sep, 2018

The order() method of java.nio.ShortBuffer is used to retrieve the buffer’s byte order.
The byte order of a short buffer created by allocation or by wrapping an existing short array is the native order of the underlying hardware. The byte order of a short buffer created as a view of a byte buffer is that of the byte buffer at the moment that the view is created.


public abstract ByteOrder order()

Return Value: The method returns the buffer’s byte order.

Below programs illustrate the use of order() method:

Program 1:

// Java program to demonstrate
// order() method
import java.nio.*;
import java.util.*;
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
        // creating short buffer
        ShortBuffer bb = ShortBuffer.allocate(7);
        // using the order method
