java.lang.Long reverseBytes(long i)


The Long.reverseBytes(long i) java method┬áreturns the value obtained by reversing the order of the bytes in the two’s complement representation of the specified long value.

Make a note that the reverseBytes() method of Long class is static thus it should be accessed statically which means the we would be calling this method in this format:

Long.reverseBytes(method args)

Non static method is usually called by just declaring method_name(argument) however in this case since the method is static, it should be called by appending the class name as suffix. We will be encountering a compilation problem if we call the java reverseBytes method non statically.
