public byte byteValue()


No parameter is required.

Return Value

Returns the numeric value represented by this object after conversion to type byte.




In the example below, the java.lang.Long.byteValue() method returns a Long object after conversion to type byte.

import java.lang.*;

public class MyClass {
  public static void main(String[] args) {
    //creating Long objects
    Long val1 = 25l;
    Long val2 = -25l;

    //printing byteValue of the Long objects
    System.out.println("byteValue of the val1 is: " + val1.byteValue()); 
    System.out.println("byteValue of the val2 is: " + val2.byteValue());   

The output of the above code will be:

byteValue of the val1 is: 25
byteValue of the val2 is: -25
