The result is a Short object that represents the short value specified by the string.

In other words, this method returns a Short object equal to the value of:

new Short(Short.parseShort(s, radix))

Parameters:
s - the string to be parsed
radix - the radix to be used in interpreting s
Returns:
a Short object holding the value represented by the string argument in the specified radix.

new Short(Short.parseShort(s))

Parameters:
s - the string to be parsed
Returns:
a Short object holding the value represented by the string argument
Throws:
NumberFormatException sample code for java.lang.NumberFormatException definition code for java.lang.NumberFormatException - If the String does not contain a parsable short.

valueOf sample code for java.lang.Short.valueOf(short) definition code for java.lang.Short.valueOf(short)

public static Short sample code for java.lang.Short definition code for java.lang.Short  valueOf(short s)
Returns a Short instance representing the specified short value. If a new Short instance is not required, this method should generally be used in preference to the constructor Short(short) sample code for java.lang.Short.Short(short) definition code for java.lang.Short.Short(short) , as this method is likely to yield significantly better space and time performance by caching frequently requested values.

Parameters:
s - a short value.

-
DecimalNumeral, HexDigits, and OctalDigits are defined in §3.10.1 of the Java Language Specification.

The sequence of characters following an (optional) negative sign and/or radix specifier ("0x", "0X", "#", or leading zero) is parsed as by the Short.parseShort method with the indicated radix (10, 16, or 8). This sequence of characters must represent a positive value or a NumberFormatException sample code for java.lang.NumberFormatException definition code for java.lang.NumberFormatException will be thrown. The result is negated if first character of the specified String is the minus sign. No whitespace characters are permitted in the String.

Parameters:
nm - the String to decode.
Returns:
a Short object holding the short value represented by nm
Throws:
NumberFormatException sample code for java.lang.NumberFormatException definition code for java.lang.NumberFormatException - if the String does not contain a parsable short.
