How To Use Varargs Variable Argument Methods.

Until 1.4 version we can’t declare a method with variable number of arguments. If there is a change in number of arguments compulsory we should go for new method. It increases length of the code and reduce readability. To overcome this problem sun people introduce var-arg methods in 1.5 version, according to this we can declare a method which can take variable number of arguments. Such type of methods are called var-arg methods.



We can declare a var-arg method as follows

M1(int… x)

We can call this method by any number of argument.



Internally var-arg parameter will be converted into one dimensional array hence within the var-arg method we can differentiate values by using index.

You can learn this in detail in our institute which provides advance Java training in Delhi and Core java training in Delhi.

Some possibilities and not allowed syntax in var-arg method

  1. We can mix var-arg parameter with normal parameter. Example


  1. Inside var-arg method we can take only one var-arg parameter and we can’t take more than one var-arg Example


  1. If we mix var-arg parameter with normal parameter then var-arg parameter should be last parameter.



In this example we use var-arg parameter before String type parameter so we will get compile time error.



In this example we use String type var-arg method after char type parameter so this works fine

  1. Inside a class we can’t declare var-arg method and corresponding one dimensional array method simultaneously otherwise we will get compile time error.
