In this example working of Java bigdecimal class shortValue method is demonstrated. Method return type is short therefore it will return only short values. Method converts bigdecimal in to short data type value. In the example one bigdecimal object mass is created. Method throws NumberFormatException if it finds any other value to be converted in to short other than integers and decimals. Method also throws ArithmeticException if the value contains non-zero fractional part.
Syntax for using the method: public short shortValue()
short sh = this.object.shortValue();
