Bitwise Operator in Java with Practical

FAQs

Bitwise Bit level programming, also known as bit level manipulation, uses operators to manipulate data at the bit level. Bitwise performs operations on one or more bit patterns or binary numerals at the bit level. They are used to speed up the calculating process in numerical computations.

Bitwise exclusive OR operator
We consider two variables a and b,
a = 12;
b = 10;
The binary representation of the above two variables would be:
a = 0000 1100.
b = 0000 1010.
When we apply the bitwise exclusive OR operator in the above two variables (a^b), then the result would be:
Result = 0000 1110.

• Bitwise Operators in Real Life
• Keeping track of many Boolean flags.
• Odd and even numbers are checked.
• Without Using a Third Variable, Swapping Variables
• Changing the case of text (Lowercase & Uppercase)
• determining whether a number is a power of two

A bitwise operator is an operator that is used to execute bitwise operations on bit patterns or binary numerals that involve individual bit manipulation. An instance of the enumeration type can store any combination of values declared in an enumerator list using bitwise operations on bit flags.
