Hi guys. I hope I am posting this in the right forum. I have a general question regarding the conditional operator in Java. I have the following if statement as an example:
if (a>b){
     m=a;
}else if (c<d){
     m=c;
}else if (b>d){
    m=d;
}else{
    m=b;
}
Is there a way I can do this using a single shorthand nested if with the conditional (?) operator? I have only seen the shortcut notation used in single if/else statements before and was just curious if it could be done with nested if's. I tried experimenting with it but I cant seem to get it to work. I appreciate any help you can give me. Thanks so much!!!
