Field Detail

BIG_ENDIAN sample code for java.nio.ByteOrder.BIG_ENDIAN

public static final ByteOrder sample code for java.nio.ByteOrder definition code for java.nio.ByteOrder  BIG_ENDIAN
Constant denoting big-endian byte order. In this order, the bytes of a multibyte value are ordered from most significant to least significant.


LITTLE_ENDIAN sample code for java.nio.ByteOrder.LITTLE_ENDIAN

public static final ByteOrder sample code for java.nio.ByteOrder definition code for java.nio.ByteOrder  LITTLE_ENDIAN
Constant denoting little-endian byte order. In this order, the bytes of a multibyte value are ordered from least significant to most significant.

Method Detail

nativeOrder sample code for java.nio.ByteOrder.nativeOrder() definition code for java.nio.ByteOrder.nativeOrder()

public static ByteOrder sample code for java.nio.ByteOrder definition code for java.nio.ByteOrder  nativeOrder()
Retrieves the native byte order of the underlying platform.

This method is defined so that performance-sensitive Java code can allocate direct buffers with the same byte order as the hardware. Native code libraries are often more efficient when such buffers are used.

Returns:
The native byte order of the hardware upon which this Java virtual machine is running

toString sample code for java.nio.ByteOrder.toString() definition code for java.nio.ByteOrder.toString()

public String sample code for java.lang.String definition code for java.lang.String  toString()
Constructs a string describing this object.

This method returns the string "BIG_ENDIAN" for BIG_ENDIAN sample code for java.nio.ByteOrder.BIG_ENDIAN definition code for java.nio.ByteOrder.BIG_ENDIAN and "LITTLE_ENDIAN" for LITTLE_ENDIAN sample code for java.nio.ByteOrder.LITTLE_ENDIAN definition code for java.nio.ByteOrder.LITTLE_ENDIAN .

Overrides:
toString sample code for java.lang.Object.toString() definition code for java.lang.Object.toString() in class Object sample code for java.lang.Object definition code for java.lang.Object
Returns:
The specified string
