Java Bitwise Logical Operators Example



This Java example demonstrates how to use bitwise logical operators in Java with an example.

Java Bitwise Logical Operators

The bitwise logical operators are &, |, ^, and ~. Let's briefly discuss these bitwise logic operators. The following table shows the outcome of each operation.

Java Bitwise Logical Operators Example

The following program demonstrates the bitwise logical operators:
package net.javaguides.corejava.operators.bitwise;

public class BitLogic {
    public static void main(String args[]) {
        String binary[] = {
            "0000",
            "0001",
            "0010",
            "0011",
            "0100",
            "0101",
            "0110",
            "0111",
            "1000",
            "1001",
            "1010",
            "1011",
            "1100",
            "1101",
            "1110",
            "1111"
        };
        int a = 3; // 0 + 2 + 1 or 0011 in binary
        int b = 6; // 4 + 2 + 0 or 0110 in binary
        int c = a | b;
        int d = a & b;
        int e = a ^ b;
        int f = (~a & b) | (a & ~b);
        int g = ~a & 0x0f;
        System.out.println(" a = " + binary[a]);
        System.out.println(" b = " + binary[b]);
        System.out.println(" a|b = " + binary[c]);
        System.out.println(" a&b = " + binary[d]);
        System.out.println(" a^b = " + binary[e]);
        System.out.println("~a&b|a&~b = " + binary[f]);
        System.out.println(" ~a = " + binary[g]);
    }

}
Output:
 a = 0011
 b = 0110
 a|b = 0111
 a&b = 0010
 a^b = 0101
~a&b|a&~b = 0101
 ~a = 1100
