LocalDateTime

public final class LocalDateTime extends Object
implements Temporal TemporalAdjuster ChronoLocalDateTime<LocalDate> Serializable

A date-time without a time-zone in the ISO-8601 calendar system, such as 2007-12-03T10:15:30.

LocalDateTime is an immutable date-time object that represents a date-time, often viewed as year-month-day-hour-minute-second. Other date and time fields, such as day-of-year, day-of-week and week-of-year, can also be accessed. Time is represented to nanosecond precision. For example, the value "2nd October 2007 at 13:45.30.123456789" can be stored in a LocalDateTime.

This class does not store or represent a time-zone. Instead, it is a description of the date, as used for birthdays, combined with the local time as seen on a wall clock. It cannot represent an instant on the time-line without additional information such as an offset or time-zone.

The ISO-8601 calendar system is the modern civil calendar system used today in most of the world. It is equivalent to the proleptic Gregorian calendar system, in which today's rules for leap years are applied for all time. For most applications written today, the ISO-8601 rules are entirely suitable. However, any application that makes use of historical dates, and requires them to be accurate will find the ISO-8601 approach unsuitable.

Inherited Method Summary

Fields

public static final LocalDateTime MAX

The maximum supported LocalDateTime, '+999999999-12-31T23:59:59.999999999'. This is the local date-time just before midnight at the end of the maximum date. This combines MAX and MAX. This could be used by an application as a "far future" date-time.

public static final LocalDateTime MIN

The minimum supported LocalDateTime, '-999999999-01-01T00:00:00'. This is the local date-time of midnight at the start of the minimum date. This combines MIN and MIN. This could be used by an application as a "far past" date-time.

Public Methods

public Temporal adjustInto (Temporal temporal)

Adjusts the specified temporal object to have the same date and time as this object.

This returns a temporal object of the same observable type as the input with the date and time changed to be the same as this.

The adjustment is equivalent to using with(TemporalField, long) twice, passing EPOCH_DAY and NANO_OF_DAY as the fields.

In most cases, it is clearer to reverse the calling pattern by using with(TemporalAdjuster):

   // these two lines are equivalent, but the second approach is recommended
   temporal = thisLocalDateTime.adjustInto(temporal);
   temporal = temporal.with(thisLocalDateTime);
 

This instance is immutable and unaffected by this method call.

Parameters
temporal the target object to be adjusted, not null
Returns
  • the adjusted object, not null
Throws
DateTimeException if unable to make the adjustment
ArithmeticException if numeric overflow occurs

public OffsetDateTime atOffset (ZoneOffset offset)

Combines this date-time with an offset to create an OffsetDateTime.

This returns an OffsetDateTime formed from this date-time at the specified offset. All possible combinations of date-time and offset are valid.

Parameters
offset the offset to combine with, not null
Returns
  • the offset date-time formed from this date-time and the specified offset, not null

public ZonedDateTime atZone (ZoneId zone)

Combines this date-time with a time-zone to create a ZonedDateTime.

This returns a ZonedDateTime formed from this date-time at the specified time-zone. The result will match this date-time as closely as possible. Time-zone rules, such as daylight savings, mean that not every local date-time is valid for the specified zone, thus the local date-time may be adjusted.

The local date-time is resolved to a single instant on the time-line. This is achieved by finding a valid offset from UTC/Greenwich for the local date-time as defined by the rules of the zone ID.

In most cases, there is only one valid offset for a local date-time. In the case of an overlap, where clocks are set back, there are two valid offsets. This method uses the earlier offset typically corresponding to "summer".

In the case of a gap, where clocks jump forward, there is no valid offset. Instead, the local date-time is adjusted to be later by the length of the gap. For a typical one hour daylight savings change, the local date-time will be moved one hour later into the offset typically corresponding to "summer".

To obtain the later offset during an overlap, call withLaterOffsetAtOverlap() on the result of this method. To throw an exception when there is a gap or overlap, use ofStrict(LocalDateTime, ZoneOffset, ZoneId).

Parameters
zone the time-zone to use, not null
Returns
  • the zoned date-time formed from this date-time, not null

public int compareTo (ChronoLocalDateTime<?> other)

Compares this date-time to another date-time.

The comparison is primarily based on the date-time, from earliest to latest. It is "consistent with equals", as defined by Comparable.

If all the date-times being compared are instances of LocalDateTime, then the comparison will be entirely based on the date-time. If some dates being compared are in different chronologies, then the chronology is also considered, see compareTo(T).

Parameters
other the other date-time to compare to, not null
Returns
  • the comparator value, negative if less, positive if greater

public boolean equals (Object obj)

Checks if this date-time is equal to another date-time.

Compares this LocalDateTime with another ensuring that the date-time is the same. Only objects of type LocalDateTime are compared, other types return false.

Parameters
obj the object to check, null returns false
Returns
  • true if this is equal to the other date-time

public String format (DateTimeFormatter formatter)

Formats this date-time using the specified formatter.

This date-time will be passed to the formatter to produce a string.

Parameters
formatter the formatter to use, not null
Returns
  • the formatted date-time string, not null
Throws
DateTimeException if an error occurs during printing

public static LocalDateTime from (TemporalAccessor temporal)

Obtains an instance of LocalDateTime from a temporal object.

This obtains a local date-time based on the specified temporal. A TemporalAccessor represents an arbitrary set of date and time information, which this factory converts to an instance of LocalDateTime.

The conversion extracts and combines the LocalDate and the LocalTime from the temporal object. Implementations are permitted to perform optimizations such as accessing those fields that are equivalent to the relevant objects.

This method matches the signature of the functional interface TemporalQuery allowing it to be used as a query via method reference, LocalDateTime::from.

Parameters
temporal the temporal object to convert, not null
Returns
  • the local date-time, not null
Throws
DateTimeException if unable to convert to a LocalDateTime

public int get (TemporalField field)

Gets the value of the specified field from this date-time as an int.

This queries this date-time for the value of the specified field. The returned value will always be within the valid range of values for the field. If it is not possible to return the value, because the field is not supported or for some other reason, an exception is thrown.

If the field is a ChronoField then the query is implemented here. The supported fields will return valid values based on this date-time, except NANO_OF_DAY, MICRO_OF_DAY, EPOCH_DAY and PROLEPTIC_MONTH which are too large to fit in an int and throw a DateTimeException. All other ChronoField instances will throw an UnsupportedTemporalTypeException.

If the field is not a ChronoField, then the result of this method is obtained by invoking TemporalField.getFrom(TemporalAccessor) passing this as the argument. Whether the value can be obtained, and what the value represents, is determined by the field.

Parameters
field the field to get, not null
Returns
  • the value for the field
Throws
DateTimeException if a value for the field cannot be obtained or the value is outside the range of valid values for the field
UnsupportedTemporalTypeException if the field is not supported or the range of values exceeds an int
ArithmeticException if numeric overflow occurs

public int getDayOfMonth ()

Gets the day-of-month field.

This method returns the primitive int value for the day-of-month.

Returns
  • the day-of-month, from 1 to 31

public DayOfWeek getDayOfWeek ()

Gets the day-of-week field, which is an enum DayOfWeek.

This method returns the enum DayOfWeek for the day-of-week. This avoids confusion as to what int values mean. If you need access to the primitive int value then the enum provides the int value.

Additional information can be obtained from the DayOfWeek. This includes textual names of the values.

Returns
  • the day-of-week, not null

public int getDayOfYear ()

Gets the day-of-year field.

This method returns the primitive int value for the day-of-year.

Returns
  • the day-of-year, from 1 to 365, or 366 in a leap year

public int getHour ()

Gets the hour-of-day field.

Returns
  • the hour-of-day, from 0 to 23

public long getLong (TemporalField field)

Gets the value of the specified field from this date-time as a long.

This queries this date-time for the value of the specified field. If it is not possible to return the value, because the field is not supported or for some other reason, an exception is thrown.

If the field is a ChronoField then the query is implemented here. The supported fields will return valid values based on this date-time. All other ChronoField instances will throw an UnsupportedTemporalTypeException.

If the field is not a ChronoField, then the result of this method is obtained by invoking TemporalField.getFrom(TemporalAccessor) passing this as the argument. Whether the value can be obtained, and what the value represents, is determined by the field.

Parameters
field the field to get, not null
Returns
  • the value for the field
Throws
DateTimeException if a value for the field cannot be obtained
UnsupportedTemporalTypeException if the field is not supported
ArithmeticException if numeric overflow occurs

public int getMinute ()

Gets the minute-of-hour field.

Returns
  • the minute-of-hour, from 0 to 59

public Month getMonth ()

Gets the month-of-year field using the Month enum.

This method returns the enum Month for the month. This avoids confusion as to what int values mean. If you need access to the primitive int value then the enum provides the int value.

Returns
  • the month-of-year, not null
See Also

public int getMonthValue ()

Gets the month-of-year field from 1 to 12.

This method returns the month as an int from 1 to 12. Application code is frequently clearer if the enum Month is used by calling getMonth().

Returns
  • the month-of-year, from 1 to 12
See Also

public int getNano ()

Gets the nano-of-second field.

Returns
  • the nano-of-second, from 0 to 999,999,999

public int getSecond ()

Gets the second-of-minute field.

Returns
  • the second-of-minute, from 0 to 59

public int getYear ()

Gets the year field.

This method returns the primitive int value for the year.

Returns
  • the year, from MIN_YEAR to MAX_YEAR

public int hashCode ()

A hash code for this date-time.

Returns
  • a suitable hash code

public boolean isAfter (ChronoLocalDateTime<?> other)

Checks if this date-time is after the specified date-time.

   LocalDate a = LocalDateTime.of(2012, 6, 30, 12, 00);
   LocalDate b = LocalDateTime.of(2012, 7, 1, 12, 00);
   a.isAfter(b) == false
   a.isAfter(a) == false
   b.isAfter(a) == true
 

This method only considers the position of the two date-times on the local time-line. It does not take into account the chronology, or calendar system. This is different from the comparison in compareTo(ChronoLocalDateTime), but is the same approach as timeLineOrder().

Parameters
other the other date-time to compare to, not null
Returns
  • true if this date-time is after the specified date-time

public boolean isBefore (ChronoLocalDateTime<?> other)

Checks if this date-time is before the specified date-time.

   LocalDate a = LocalDateTime.of(2012, 6, 30, 12, 00);
   LocalDate b = LocalDateTime.of(2012, 7, 1, 12, 00);
   a.isBefore(b) == true
   a.isBefore(a) == false
   b.isBefore(a) == false
 

This method only considers the position of the two date-times on the local time-line. It does not take into account the chronology, or calendar system. This is different from the comparison in compareTo(ChronoLocalDateTime), but is the same approach as timeLineOrder().

Parameters
other the other date-time to compare to, not null
Returns
  • true if this date-time is before the specified date-time

public boolean isEqual (ChronoLocalDateTime<?> other)

Checks if this date-time is equal to the specified date-time.

   LocalDate a = LocalDateTime.of(2012, 6, 30, 12, 00);
   LocalDate b = LocalDateTime.of(2012, 7, 1, 12, 00);
   a.isEqual(b) == false
   a.isEqual(a) == true
   b.isEqual(a) == false
 

This method only considers the position of the two date-times on the local time-line. It does not take into account the chronology, or calendar system. This is different from the comparison in compareTo(ChronoLocalDateTime), but is the same approach as timeLineOrder().

Parameters
other the other date-time to compare to, not null
Returns
  • true if this date-time is equal to the specified date-time

public boolean isSupported (TemporalUnit unit)

Checks if the specified unit is supported.

This checks if the specified unit can be added to, or subtracted from, this date-time. If false, then calling the plus(long, TemporalUnit) and minus methods will throw an exception.

If the unit is a ChronoUnit then the query is implemented here. The supported units are:

  • NANOS
  • MICROS
  • MILLIS
  • SECONDS
  • MINUTES
  • HOURS
  • HALF_DAYS
  • DAYS
  • WEEKS
  • MONTHS
  • YEARS
  • DECADES

  • ERAS
All other ChronoUnit instances will return false.

If the unit is not a ChronoUnit, then the result of this method is obtained by invoking TemporalUnit.isSupportedBy(Temporal) passing this as the argument. Whether the unit is supported is determined by the unit.

Parameters
unit the unit to check, null returns false
Returns
  • true if the unit can be added/subtracted, false if not

public boolean isSupported (TemporalField field)

Checks if the specified field is supported.

This checks if this date-time can be queried for the specified field. If false, then calling the range, get and with(TemporalField, long) methods will throw an exception.

Parameters
field the field to check, null returns false
Returns
  • true if the field is supported on this date-time, false if not

public LocalDateTime minus (TemporalAmount amountToSubtract)

Returns a copy of this date-time with the specified amount subtracted.

This returns a LocalDateTime, based on this one, with the specified amount subtracted. The amount is typically Period or Duration but may be any other type implementing the TemporalAmount interface.

The calculation is delegated to the amount object by calling subtractFrom(Temporal). The amount implementation is free to implement the subtraction in any way it wishes, however it typically calls back to minus(long, TemporalUnit). Consult the documentation of the amount implementation to determine if it can be successfully subtracted.

This instance is immutable and unaffected by this method call.

Parameters
amountToSubtract the amount to subtract, not null
Returns
  • a LocalDateTime based on this date-time with the subtraction made, not null
Throws
DateTimeException if the subtraction cannot be made
ArithmeticException if numeric overflow occurs

public LocalDateTime minus (long amountToSubtract, TemporalUnit unit)

Returns a copy of this date-time with the specified amount subtracted.

This returns a LocalDateTime, based on this one, with the amount in terms of the unit subtracted. If it is not possible to subtract the amount, because the unit is not supported or for some other reason, an exception is thrown.

This method is equivalent to plus(long, TemporalUnit) with the amount negated. See that method for a full description of how addition, and thus subtraction, works.

This instance is immutable and unaffected by this method call.

Parameters
amountToSubtract the amount of the unit to subtract from the result, may be negative
unit the unit of the amount to subtract, not null
Returns
  • a LocalDateTime based on this date-time with the specified amount subtracted, not null
Throws
DateTimeException if the subtraction cannot be made
UnsupportedTemporalTypeException if the unit is not supported
ArithmeticException if numeric overflow occurs

public LocalDateTime minusDays (long days)

Returns a copy of this LocalDateTime with the specified number of days subtracted.

This method subtracts the specified amount from the days field decrementing the month and year fields as necessary to ensure the result remains valid. The result is only invalid if the maximum/minimum year is exceeded.

For example, 2009-01-01 minus one day would result in 2008-12-31.

This instance is immutable and unaffected by this method call.

Parameters
days the days to subtract, may be negative
Returns
  • a LocalDateTime based on this date-time with the days subtracted, not null
Throws
DateTimeException if the result exceeds the supported date range

public LocalDateTime minusHours (long hours)

Returns a copy of this LocalDateTime with the specified number of hours subtracted.

This instance is immutable and unaffected by this method call.

Parameters
hours the hours to subtract, may be negative
Returns
  • a LocalDateTime based on this date-time with the hours subtracted, not null
Throws
DateTimeException if the result exceeds the supported date range

public LocalDateTime minusMinutes (long minutes)

Returns a copy of this LocalDateTime with the specified number of minutes subtracted.

This instance is immutable and unaffected by this method call.

Parameters
minutes the minutes to subtract, may be negative
Returns
  • a LocalDateTime based on this date-time with the minutes subtracted, not null
Throws
DateTimeException if the result exceeds the supported date range

public LocalDateTime minusMonths (long months)

Returns a copy of this LocalDateTime with the specified number of months subtracted.

This method subtracts the specified amount from the months field in three steps:

  1. Subtract the input months from the month-of-year field
  2. Check if the resulting date would be invalid
  3. Adjust the day-of-month to the last valid day if necessary

For example, 2007-03-31 minus one month would result in the invalid date 2007-04-31. Instead of returning an invalid result, the last valid day of the month, 2007-04-30, is selected instead.

This instance is immutable and unaffected by this method call.

Parameters
months the months to subtract, may be negative
Returns
  • a LocalDateTime based on this date-time with the months subtracted, not null
Throws
DateTimeException if the result exceeds the supported date range

public LocalDateTime plus (TemporalAmount amountToAdd)

Returns a copy of this date-time with the specified amount added.

This returns a LocalDateTime, based on this one, with the specified amount added. The amount is typically Period or Duration but may be any other type implementing the TemporalAmount interface.

The calculation is delegated to the amount object by calling addTo(Temporal). The amount implementation is free to implement the addition in any way it wishes, however it typically calls back to plus(long, TemporalUnit). Consult the documentation of the amount implementation to determine if it can be successfully added.

This instance is immutable and unaffected by this method call.

Parameters
amountToAdd the amount to add, not null
Returns
  • a LocalDateTime based on this date-time with the addition made, not null
Throws
DateTimeException if the addition cannot be made
ArithmeticException if numeric overflow occurs

public LocalDateTime plus (long amountToAdd, TemporalUnit unit)

Returns a copy of this date-time with the specified amount added.

This returns a LocalDateTime, based on this one, with the amount in terms of the unit added. If it is not possible to add the amount, because the unit is not supported or for some other reason, an exception is thrown.

If the field is a ChronoUnit then the addition is implemented here. Date units are added as per plus(long, TemporalUnit). Time units are added as per plus(long, TemporalUnit) with any overflow in days added equivalent to using plusDays(long).

If the field is not a ChronoUnit, then the result of this method is obtained by invoking TemporalUnit.addTo(Temporal, long) passing this as the argument. In this case, the unit determines whether and how to perform the addition.

This instance is immutable and unaffected by this method call.

Parameters
amountToAdd the amount of the unit to add to the result, may be negative
unit the unit of the amount to add, not null
Returns
  • a LocalDateTime based on this date-time with the specified amount added, not null

public LocalDateTime plusDays (long days)

Returns a copy of this LocalDateTime with the specified number of days added.

This method adds the specified amount to the days field incrementing the month and year fields as necessary to ensure the result remains valid. The result is only invalid if the maximum/minimum year is exceeded.

For example, 2008-12-31 plus one day would result in 2009-01-01.

This instance is immutable and unaffected by this method call.

Parameters
days the days to add, may be negative
Returns
  • a LocalDateTime based on this date-time with the days added, not null
Throws

Returns
  • a LocalDateTime based on this date-time with the years added, not null
Throws
DateTimeException if the result exceeds the supported date range

public R query (TemporalQuery<R> query)

Queries this date-time using the specified query.

This queries this date-time using the specified query strategy object. The TemporalQuery object defines the logic to be used to obtain the result. Read the documentation of the query to understand what the result of this method will be.

The result of this method is obtained by invoking the queryFrom(TemporalAccessor) method on the specified query passing this as the argument.

Parameters
query the query to invoke, not null
Returns
  • the query result, null may be returned (defined by the query)
Throws
DateTimeException if unable to query (defined by the query)
ArithmeticException if numeric overflow occurs (defined by the query)

public ValueRange range (TemporalField field)

Gets the range of valid values for the specified field.

The range object expresses the minimum and maximum valid values for a field. This date-time is used to enhance the accuracy of the returned range. If it is not possible to return the range, because the field is not supported or for some other reason, an exception is thrown.

If the field is a ChronoField then the query is implemented here. The supported fields will return appropriate range instances. All other ChronoField instances will throw an UnsupportedTemporalTypeException.

If the field is not a ChronoField, then the result of this method is obtained by invoking TemporalField.rangeRefinedBy(TemporalAccessor) passing this as the argument. Whether the range can be obtained is determined by the field.

Parameters
field the field to query the range for, not null
Returns
  • the range of valid values for the field, not null
Throws
DateTimeException if the range for the field cannot be obtained
UnsupportedTemporalTypeException if the field is not supported

  • uuuu-MM-dd'T'HH:mm
  • uuuu-MM-dd'T'HH:mm:ss
  • uuuu-MM-dd'T'HH:mm:ss.SSS
  • uuuu-MM-dd'T'HH:mm:ss.SSSSSS
  • uuuu-MM-dd'T'HH:mm:ss.SSSSSSSSS
The format used will be the shortest that outputs the full value of the time where the omitted parts are implied to be zero.

Returns
  • a string representation of this date-time, not null

public LocalDateTime truncatedTo (TemporalUnit unit)

Returns a copy of this LocalDateTime with the time truncated.

Truncation returns a copy of the original date-time with fields smaller than the specified unit set to zero. For example, truncating with the minutes unit will set the second-of-minute and nano-of-second field to zero.

The unit must have a {@linkplain TemporalUnit#getDuration() duration} that divides into the length of a standard day without remainder. This includes all supplied time units on ChronoUnit and DAYS. Other units throw an exception.

This instance is immutable and unaffected by this method call.

Parameters
unit the unit to truncate to, not null
Returns
  • a LocalDateTime based on this date-time with the time truncated, not null
Throws
DateTimeException if unable to truncate
UnsupportedTemporalTypeException if the unit is not supported

public long until (Temporal endExclusive, TemporalUnit unit)

Calculates the amount of time until another date-time in terms of the specified unit.

This calculates the amount of time between two LocalDateTime objects in terms of a single TemporalUnit. The start and end points are this and the specified date-time. The result will be negative if the end is before the start. The Temporal passed to this method is converted to a LocalDateTime using from(TemporalAccessor). For example, the amount in days between two date-times can be calculated using startDateTime.until(endDateTime, DAYS).

The calculation returns a whole number, representing the number of complete units between the two date-times. For example, the amount in months between 2012-06-15T00:00 and 2012-08-14T23:59 will only be one month as it is one minute short of two months.

There are two equivalent ways of using this method. The first is to invoke this method. The second is to use between(Temporal, Temporal):

   // these two lines are equivalent
   amount = start.until(end, MONTHS);
   amount = MONTHS.between(start, end);
 
The choice should be made based on which makes the code more readable.

The calculation is implemented in this method for ChronoUnit. The units NANOS, MICROS, MILLIS, SECONDS, MINUTES, HOURS and HALF_DAYS, DAYS, WEEKS, MONTHS, YEARS, DECADES, CENTURIES, MILLENNIA and ERAS are supported. Other ChronoUnit values will throw an exception.

If the unit is not a ChronoUnit, then the result of this method is obtained by invoking TemporalUnit.between(Temporal, Temporal) passing this as the first argument and the converted input temporal as the second argument.

This instance is immutable and unaffected by this method call.

Parameters
endExclusive the end date, exclusive, which is converted to a LocalDateTime, not null
unit the unit to measure the amount in, not null
Returns
  • the amount of time between this date-time and the end date-time
Throws
DateTimeException if the amount cannot be calculated, or the end temporal cannot be converted to a LocalDateTime
UnsupportedTemporalTypeException if the unit is not supported
ArithmeticException if numeric overflow occurs

public LocalDateTime with (TemporalField field, long newValue)

Returns a copy of this date-time with the specified field set to a new value.

This returns a LocalDateTime, based on this one, with the value for the specified field changed. This can be used to change any supported field, such as the year, month or day-of-month. If it is not possible to set the value, because the field is not supported or for some other reason, an exception is thrown.

In some cases, changing the specified field can cause the resulting date-time to become invalid, such as changing the month from 31st January to February would make the day-of-month invalid. In cases like this, the field is responsible for resolving the date. Typically it will choose the previous valid date, which would be the last valid day of February in this example.

If the field is a ChronoField then the adjustment is implemented here. The supported fields will behave as per the matching method on LocalDate or LocalTime. All other ChronoField instances will throw an UnsupportedTemporalTypeException.

If the field is not a ChronoField, then the result of this method is obtained by invoking TemporalField.adjustInto(Temporal, long) passing this as the argument. In this case, the field determines whether and how to adjust the instant.

This instance is immutable and unaffected by this method call.

Parameters
field the field to set in the result, not null
newValue the new value of the field in the result
Returns
  • a LocalDateTime based on this with the specified field set, not null
Throws
DateTimeException if the field cannot be set
UnsupportedTemporalTypeException if the field is not supported
ArithmeticException if numeric overflow occurs

public LocalDateTime with (TemporalAdjuster adjuster)

Returns an adjusted copy of this date-time.

This returns a LocalDateTime, based on this one, with the date-time adjusted. The adjustment takes place using the specified adjuster strategy object. Read the documentation of the adjuster to understand what adjustment will be made.

A simple adjuster might simply set the one of the fields, such as the year field. A more complex adjuster might set the date to the last day of the month.

A selection of common adjustments is provided in TemporalAdjusters. These include finding the "last day of the month" and "next Wednesday". Key date-time classes also implement the TemporalAdjuster interface, such as Month and MonthDay. The adjuster is responsible for handling special cases, such as the varying lengths of month and leap years.

For example this code returns a date on the last day of July:

  import static java.time.Month.*;
  import static java.time.temporal.TemporalAdjusters.*;

  result = localDateTime.with(JULY).with(lastDayOfMonth());
 

The classes LocalDate and LocalTime implement TemporalAdjuster, thus this method can be used to change the date, time or offset:

  result = localDateTime.with(date);
  result = localDateTime.with(time);
 

The result of this method is obtained by invoking the adjustInto(Temporal) method on the specified adjuster passing this as the argument.

This instance is immutable and unaffected by this method call.

Parameters
adjuster the adjuster to use, not null
Returns
  • a LocalDateTime based on this with the adjustment made, not null
Throws
DateTimeException if the adjustment cannot be made
ArithmeticException if numeric overflow occurs
