import java.nio.*;
import java.nio.FloatBuffer;
public class FloatBufferDemo {
public static void main(String[] argsthrows Exception {
FloatBuffer floatBuf = FloatBuffer.allocate(500);
System.out.println("Position of FloatBuffer :" 
                                  + floatBuf.position
System.out.println("Limit of FloatBuffer :" 
                                     + floatBuf.limit());
System.out.println("Capacity of FloatBuffer :"
+ floatBuf.capacity());
