ShortBuffer slice() method in Java with Examples
  • Last Updated : 20 Sep, 2018

The slice() method of java.nio.ShortBuffer Class is used to create a new short buffer whose content is a shared subsequence of this buffer’s content.
The content of the new buffer will start at this buffer’s current position. Changes to this buffer’s content will be visible in the new buffer, and vice versa; the two buffers’ position, limit, and mark values will be independent.
The new buffer’s position will be zero, its capacity and its limit will be the number of shorts remaining in this buffer, and its mark will be undefined. The new buffer will be direct if, and only if, this buffer is direct, and it will be read-only if, and only if, this buffer is read-only.

Syntax:

public abstract ShortBuffer slice()

Return Value: This method returns the new short buffer.

Below are the examples to illustrate the slice() method:

Program 1:






// Java program to demonstrate
// slice() method
  
import java.nio.*;
import java.util.*;
  
public class GFG {
  
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // Declaring the capacity of the ShortBuffer
        int capacity = 10;
  
        // Creating the ShortBuffer
        try {
  
            // creating object of Shortbuffer
            // and allocating size capacity
            ShortBuffer sb1 = ShortBuffer.allocate(capacity);
  
            // putting the value in Shortbuffer
            sb1.put((short)856);
            sb1.put((short)961);
  
            // print the ShortBuffer
            System.out.println("Original ShortBuffer: "
                               + Arrays.toString(sb1.array()));
  
            // print the ShortBuffer position
            System.out.println("\nposition: " + sb1.position());
  
            // print the ShortBuffer capacity
            System.out.println("\ncapacity: " + sb1.capacity());
  
            // Creating a shared subsequance buffer of given ShortBuffer
            // using slice() method
            ShortBuffer sb2 = sb1.slice();
  
            // print the shared subsequance buffer
            System.out.println("\nshared subsequance ShortBuffer: "
                               + Arrays.toString(sb2.array()));
  
            // print the ShortBuffer position
            System.out.println("\nposition: " + sb2.position());
  
            // print the ShortBuffer capacity
            System.out.println("\ncapacity: " + sb2.capacity());
        }
  
        catch (IllegalArgumentException e) {
  
            System.out.println("IllegalArgumentException catched");
        }
  
        catch (ReadOnlyBufferException e) {
  
            System.out.println("ReadOnlyBufferException catched");
        }
    }
}
Output:
Original ShortBuffer: [856, 961, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0]

position: 2

capacity: 10

shared subsequance ShortBuffer: [856, 961, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0]

position: 0

capacity: 8

Program 2:




// Java program to demonstrate
// slice() method
  
import java.nio.*;
import java.util.*;
  
public class GFG {
  
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // Declaring the capacity of the ShortBuffer
        int capacity = 10;
  
        // Creating the ShortBuffer
        try {
  
            // creating object of Shortbuffer
            // and allocating size capacity
            ShortBuffer sb1 = ShortBuffer.allocate(capacity);
  
            // putting the value in Shortbuffer
            sb1.put((short)856);
            sb1.put((short)961);
            sb1.put((short)656);
            sb1.put((short)361);
  
            // print the ShortBuffer
            System.out.println("Original ShortBuffer: "
                               + Arrays.toString(sb1.array()));
  
            // print the ShortBuffer position
            System.out.println("\nposition: " + sb1.position());
  
            // print the ShortBuffer capacity
            System.out.println("\ncapacity: " + sb1.capacity());
  
            // Creating a shared subsequance buffer of given ShortBuffer
            // using slice() method
            ShortBuffer sb2 = sb1.slice();
            sb2.put((short)234);
            sb2.put((short)634);
  
            // print the shared subsequance buffer
            System.out.println("\nshared subsequance ShortBuffer: "
                               + Arrays.toString(sb2.array()));
  
            // print the ShortBuffer position
            System.out.println("\nposition: " + sb2.position());
  
            // print the ShortBuffer capacity
            System.out.println("\ncapacity: " + sb2.capacity());
        }
  
        catch (IllegalArgumentException e) {
  
            System.out.println("IllegalArgumentException catched");
        }
  
        catch (ReadOnlyBufferException e) {
  
            System.out.println("ReadOnlyBufferException catched");
        }
    }
}
Output:
Original ShortBuffer: [856, 961, 656, 361, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0]

position: 4

capacity: 10

shared subsequance ShortBuffer: [856, 961, 656, 361, 234, 634, 0, 0, 0, 0]

position: 2

capacity: 6
