Java Unary Operators

The unary operators require only one operand; they perform various operations such as incrementing/decrementing a value by one, negating an expression, or inverting the value of a boolean.

+Unary plus operator; indicates positive value (numbers are positive without this, however)
-Unary minus operator; negates an expression
++Increment operator; increments a value by 1
--Decrement operator; decrements a value by 1
!Logical complement operator; inverts the value of a boolean

The increment/decrement operators can be applied before (prefix) or after (postfix) the operand. The code result++; and ++result; will both end in result being incremented by one. The only difference is that the prefix version (++result) evaluates to the incremented value, whereas the postfix version (result++) evaluates to the original value. If you are just performing a simple

increment/decrement, it doesn't really matter which version you choose. But if you use this operator in part of a larger expression, the one that you choose may make a significant difference.

Screenshots of Prefix Postfix Unary Operator Program

The following program PrePostUnaryOp illustrates the prefix/postfix unary increment operator:

public class PrePostUnaryOp {
    public static void main(String[] args){
        int u = 50;
        // using postfix '++' operand which show result from incremented by one. 
        // using prefix  '++'operand which before incremented by one.and after then show result 
       // using prefix  operand which show result from incremented by one.
       // show orignal result 
        // using postfix  operand which show result from incremented by one.


Simple Java Program Using Unary Operators:

/* Simple Java Program Example how to use Unary Operators  */

public class UnaryOprator {

    public static void main(String[] args) {

        int op = 10;
        // Usingng unary operator '+'
        System.out.println("The Result Is:=" +op);

        // Now using '--' unary operator

        // Now using '++' unary operator

       //Now using '-' unary operator

        System.out.println("The Program is  About Unary Operators");
