Displaying output using ‘println’

displaying output using 'println'

Displaying output using ‘println‘ states that , when you want to display something on the output console from your program you need to make use of these ‘println‘ methods. Apart from println() method , Java has three more methods which are used likely less than the println() and they are print() and printf()


println() – Method

  • In order to display your output in a new line , we need to make use of this println() method. 
  • The println() method is the pre-defined method of ‘PrintStream’ class and this PrintStream class belongs to java.io package. 
  • println() method is an overloaded method of PrintStream class. 
  • Overloading a method is the process of defining same name to more than one method which is used for different purposes. 
  • The overloading methods of println() are :
  1. println(short) ;  2. println(byte);  3. println(int); 4. println(long); 5. println(float); 6. println(double); 7. println(String); 8. println(boolean); 9. println(char);
  • These are the overloading methods of println() of PrintStream class. Using these methods you can print an integer and a string and a float value etc

Displaying output using ‘println’

To know how to use these overloaded methods in your Java program , let’s take a look at the sample program which uses different types of println() methods to display the result.

Program Discussion Points

  • Even it is an int value but when you mention double quotes “10+20 ”  , Java will take it as a string. 
  • In Java the ‘+’ operator acts according to the situation it is called polymorphic behavior , as you can see in the fourth and fifth println statements. 
  • If you want to display different data types values then make use of this ‘+’ operator which is explained in the last println statement. 

print() Method

  • print() method prints the entire output in one single line , which is quite complex to understand for the end user. 
  • In the sample program output , if you want to print the output in one single line then make use of this print() method.
  • In the above println statements remove ‘println‘ and replace it with ‘print‘. your output will be in one single line.

  1. I haven?¦t checked in here for a while since I thought it was getting boring, but the last few posts are good quality so I guess I?¦ll add you back to my daily bloglist. You deserve it my friend 🙂
