byte to short Java

byte to short Java

After knowing the Java rules of Data Type Casting (Type Conversion), let us cast byte to short. The byte takes 1 byte of memory and short takes two bytes of memory. Assignment 1 byte value to 2 bytes is done implicitly by the JVM.

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

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


Following example on byte to short illustrates the syntax of automatic promotion of widening conversion of Java.
