short to float Java

short to float Java

After knowing primitive data types and Java rules of Data Type Casting (Type Conversion), let us cast short to float.

The short takes 2 byte of memory and float takes 4 bytes of memory. Assignment 2 bytes of memory to 4 byte of memory is done implicitly by JVM. This is known as widening conversion.

See the data types order to know the brief rules of casting.

byte –> short –> int –> long –> float –> double

The left-side value can be assigned to any right-side value and is done implicitly. The reverse like int to short requires explicit casting.

Examples of implicit casting

short x = 10;
int y = x;

byte x = 10;
short y = x;

Following example on short to float explains Java syntax of implicit casting where a short value is assigned to a float.

float f1 = s1;

The short s1 is assigned to float f1. This is done implicitly by JVM.
