Best way to convert float to int in Java 8?

Most of the time, Java developers have to do type conversion. In this example, I will cover the conversion of float datatype to int. There are several ways to achieve this.

Solution 1

public class FloatToIntCasting {
    public static void main( String[] args ) {
        float value = 0.9f;
        System.out.println( "0.9f converted to int : " +  (int) value );
        value = 1.1f;
        System.out.println( "1.1f converted to int : " + (int) value );

0.9f converted to int : 0
1.1f converted to int : 1

As we can see in the above example, casting a float to int results in downcasting. It simply removes the fraction part and returns the value.

Solution 2

public class FloatToIntUsingMathRound {

    public static void main( String[] args ) {
        float value = 0.9f;
       System.out.println( "0.9f rounded to int  : " +  Math.round( value ));
       value = 1.49f;
       System.out.println( "1.49f rounded to int : " +  Math.round( value ));
       value = 1.5f;
       System.out.println( "1.5f rounded to int  : " +  Math.round( value ));

Output :
0.9f   rounded to int   : 1
1.49f rounded to int   : 1
1.5f   rounded to int   : 2

Math.round rounds the float to the closest int value. It simply looks for the middle half value i.e. 0.5,

  •   < 0.5 discards the fraction part like 1.49f is rounded to 1
  •  >= 0.5  moves the value to the next int value like1.5f is rounded to 2

Note that java Math class has two overloaded method

  1. Math.round(float) returns int
  2.  Math.round(double) returns long

Intellij : How to add @author comment to every new class

 Introduction In this tutorial, we will learn how to add @author comments to every new class that we create. We can achieve it using either of the following two solutions Solution 1:  Automatically add @author comments to every new class using Files and Code Templates Open File -> Settings -> Editor -> File and Code Templates -> Includes Click on Includes . Under File Header , enter the following comments text /**  * @author ${USER}  * @Date ${DATE}   */ Intellij - add @author comments Solution 2: Autocompletion of @author Open File  ->  Settings  ->  Editor  -> Live Templates Select Java and then click on + button In Abbreviation, enter @a In template text , enter the following comments           /**             * @author ${USER}             * @Date ${DATE}            */ In option , Expands with select SPACE Intellij - Autocompletion @author You can simply add the @author comments by typing @a and then click SPACE
