Java – Increment and Decrement Operator1 min read

Bitwise operator works on bits and performs a bit-by-bit operation. There are six Bitwise Operators and can be applied to the integer types, long, int, short, char, and byte.

List of Bitwise Operator in Java:

  • Bitwise AND: ‘&’
    Binary AND Operator copies a bit to the result if it exists in both operands.
  • Bitwise OR: ‘|’
    Binary OR Operator copies a bit if it exists in either operand.
  • Bitwise XOR: ‘^’
    Binary XOR Operator copies the bit if it is set in one operand but not both.
  • Binary Left Shift: ‘<<’
    TThe left operands value is moved left by the number of bits specified by the right operand.
  • Binary Right Shift: ‘>>’
    The left operand’s value is moved right by the number of bits specified by the right operand.
  • Bitwise complement: ‘~’
    Binary Ones Complement Operator is unary and has the effect of ‘flipping’ bits.
  • zero-fill right shift: ‘>>>’
    The left operands value is moved right by the number of bits specified by the right operand and shifted values are filled up with zeros.
