import java.nio.*;
import java.nio.ByteBuffer;

public class PutByte {
  public static final int capacity = 9;
  public static void main(String[] args) {
    try {
      ByteBuffer byteBuf = ByteBuffer.allocate(capacity);
      for (int i = 0; i < 9; i++) {
        byteBuf.put((byte) ('1' + i));
      System.out.print("\nContents of buffer :");
      while (byteBuf.hasRemaining()) {
    catch (Exception e) {
