java.lang.Short Class & Methods

The java.lang.Short class wraps a value of primitive type short in an object. An object of type Short contains a single field whose type is short. This class provides several utility methods for converting a short to a String and a String to a short, as well as other constants and methods useful when dealing with a short.

Short class implements Comparable Interface that’s help while sorting list of Objects on natural order.

See Also:


  • static short MAX_VALUE :A constant holding the maximum value a short can have, 215-1.
  • static short MIN_VALUE :A constant holding the minimum value a short can have, -215.
  • static int SIZE :The number of bits used to represent a short value in two’s complement binary form.
  • static Class TYPE :The Class instance representing the primitive type short.


  • Short(short value) :Constructs a newly allocated Short object that represents the specified short value.
  • Short(String s) :Constructs a newly allocated Short object that represents the short value indicated by the String parameter.


  • byte byteValue() :Returns the value of this Short as a byte.
  • static int compare(short x, short y) :Compares two short values numerically.
  • int compareTo(Short anotherShort) :Compares two Short objects numerically.
  • static Short decode(String nm) :Decodes a String into a Short.
  • double doubleValue() :Returns the value of this Short as a double.
  • boolean equals(Object obj) :Compares this object to the specified object.
  • float floatValue() :Returns the value of this Short as a float.
  • int hashCode() :Returns a hash code for this Short; equal to the result of invoking intValue().
  • int intValue() :Returns the value of this Short as an int.
  • long longValue() :Returns the value of this Short as a long.
  • static short parseShort(String s) :Parses the string argument as a signed decimal short.
  • static short parseShort(String s, int radix) :Parses the string argument as a signed short in the radix specified by the second argument.
  • static short reverseBytes(short i) :Returns the value obtained by reversing the order of the bytes in the two’s complement representation of the specified short value.
  • short shortValue() :Returns the value of this Short as a short.
  • String toString() :Returns a String object representing this Short’s value.
  • String toString(short s) :Returns a new String object representing the specified short.
  • static Short valueOf(short s) :Returns a Short instance representing the specified short value.
  • static Short valueOf(String s) :Returns a Short object holding the value given by the specified String.
  • static Short valueOf(String s, int radix) :Returns a Short object holding the value extracted from the specified String when parsed with the radix given by the second argument.




Elasticsearch REST JAVA Client for Cluster Detail

Below is example to get Cluster Detail in Java Object by using Elasticsearch REST Java client. Here client will call endpoint  “/_cluster/health” to retrieve all detail of index list. It is same as we use GET by CURL

GET http://elasticsearchHost:9200/_cluster/health


  • Minimum requirement for Java 7 version required.
  • Add below dependency for Elasticsearch REST and JSON Mapping in your pom.xml or add in your class path.


<!--Elasticsearch REST jar-->
<!--Jackson jar for mapping json to Java -->

Sample Code

import java.io.IOException;
import java.util.Collections;

import org.apache.http.HttpEntity;
import org.apache.http.HttpHost;
import org.apache.http.auth.AuthScope;
import org.apache.http.auth.UsernamePasswordCredentials;
import org.apache.http.client.CredentialsProvider;
import org.apache.http.impl.client.BasicCredentialsProvider;
import org.apache.http.impl.nio.client.HttpAsyncClientBuilder;
import org.elasticsearch.client.Response;
import org.elasticsearch.client.RestClient;
import org.elasticsearch.client.RestClientBuilder;

import com.fasterxml.jackson.databind.ObjectMapper;

public class ElasticsearchRESTClusterClient {

	public static void main(String[] args) {
		ClusterInfo clusterHealth = null;
		RestClient client = null;
		try {
			client = openConnection();
			if (client != null) {
				// performRequest GET method will retrieve all cluster health
				// information from elastic server
				Response response = client.performRequest("GET", "/_cluster/health",
						Collections.singletonMap("pretty", "true"));
				// GetEntity api will return content of response in form of json
				// in Http Entity
				HttpEntity entity = response.getEntity();
				ObjectMapper jacksonObjectMapper = new ObjectMapper();
				// Map json response to Java object in ClusterInfo
				// Cluster Info
				clusterHealth = jacksonObjectMapper.readValue(entity.getContent(), ClusterInfo.class);

		} catch (Exception ex) {
			System.out.println("Exception found while getting cluster detail");
		} finally {


	// Get Rest client connection
	private static RestClient openConnection() {
		RestClient client = null;
		try {
			final CredentialsProvider credentialsProvider = new BasicCredentialsProvider();
			credentialsProvider.setCredentials(AuthScope.ANY, new UsernamePasswordCredentials("userId", "password"));
			client = RestClient.builder(new HttpHost("elasticHost", Integer.parseInt("9200")))
					.setHttpClientConfigCallback(new RestClientBuilder.HttpClientConfigCallback() {
						// Customize connection as per requirement
						public HttpAsyncClientBuilder customizeHttpClient(HttpAsyncClientBuilder httpClientBuilder) {
							return httpClientBuilder
									// Credentials
									// Proxy
									.setProxy(new HttpHost("ProxyServer", 8080));


		} catch (Exception ex) {
		return client;

	// Close Open connection
	private static void closeConnnection(RestClient client) {
		if (client != null) {
			try {
			} catch (IOException ex) {


Cluster Info Java Object where retrieve json response will map.
