AbstractChronology

public abstract class AbstractChronology extends Object
implements Chronology
Known Direct Subclasses

An abstract implementation of a calendar system, used to organize and identify dates.

The main date and time API is built on the ISO calendar system. The chronology operates behind the scenes to represent the general concept of a calendar system.

See Chronology for more details.

Public Methods

public int compareTo (Chronology other)

Compares this chronology to another chronology.

The comparison order first by the chronology ID string, then by any additional information specific to the subclass. It is "consistent with equals", as defined by Comparable.

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

public boolean equals (Object obj)

Checks if this chronology is equal to another chronology.

The comparison is based on the entire state of the object.

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

public int hashCode ()

A hash code for this chronology.

The hash code should be based on the entire state of the object.

Returns
  • a suitable hash code

public ChronoLocalDate resolveDate (Map<TemporalFieldLong> fieldValues, ResolverStyle resolverStyle)

Resolves parsed ChronoField values into a date during parsing.

Most TemporalField implementations are resolved using the resolve method on the field. By contrast, the ChronoField class defines fields that only have meaning relative to the chronology. As such, ChronoField date fields are resolved here in the context of a specific chronology.

ChronoField instances are resolved by this method, which may be overridden in subclasses.

  • EPOCH_DAY - If present, this is converted to a date and all other date fields are then cross-checked against the date.
  • PROLEPTIC_MONTH - If present, then it is split into the YEAR and MONTH_OF_YEAR. If the mode is strict or smart then the field is validated.
  • YEAR_OF_ERA and ERA - If both are present, then they are combined to form a YEAR. In lenient mode, the YEAR_OF_ERA range is not validated, in smart and strict mode it is. The ERA is validated for range in all three modes. If only the YEAR_OF_ERA is present, and the mode is smart or lenient, then the last available era is assumed. In strict mode, no era is assumed and the YEAR_OF_ERA is left untouched. If only the ERA is present, then it is left untouched.
  • YEAR, MONTH_OF_YEAR and DAY_OF_MONTH - If all three are present, then they are combined to form a date. In all three modes, the YEAR is validated. If the mode is smart or strict, then the month and day are validated. If the mode is lenient, then the date is combined in a manner equivalent to creating a date on the first day of the first month in the requested year, then adding the difference in months, then the difference in days. If the mode is smart, and the day-of-month is greater than the maximum for the year-month, then the day-of-month is adjusted to the last day-of-month. If the mode is strict, then the three fields must form a valid date.
  • YEAR and DAY_OF_YEAR - If both are present, then they are combined to form a date. In all three modes, the YEAR is validated. If the mode is lenient, then the date is combined in a manner equivalent to creating a date on the first day of the requested year, then adding the difference in days. If the mode is smart or strict, then the two fields must form a valid date.
  • YEAR, MONTH_OF_YEAR, ALIGNED_WEEK_OF_MONTH and ALIGNED_DAY_OF_WEEK_IN_MONTH - If all four are present, then they are combined to form a date. In all three modes, the YEAR is validated. If the mode is lenient, then the date is combined in a manner equivalent to creating a date on the first day of the first month in the requested year, then adding the difference in months, then the difference in weeks, then in days. If the mode is smart or strict, then the all four fields are validated to their outer ranges. The date is then combined in a manner equivalent to creating a date on the first day of the requested year and month, then adding the amount in weeks and days to reach their values. If the mode is strict, the date is additionally validated to check that the day and week adjustment did not change the month.
  • YEAR, MONTH_OF_YEAR, ALIGNED_WEEK_OF_MONTH and DAY_OF_WEEK - If all four are present, then they are combined to form a date. The approach is the same as described above for years, months and weeks in ALIGNED_DAY_OF_WEEK_IN_MONTH. The day-of-week is adjusted as the next or same matching day-of-week once the years, months and weeks have been handled.
  • YEAR, ALIGNED_WEEK_OF_YEAR and ALIGNED_DAY_OF_WEEK_IN_YEAR - If all three are present, then they are combined to form a date. In all three modes, the YEAR is validated. If the mode is lenient, then the date is combined in a manner equivalent to creating a date on the first day of the requested year, then adding the difference in weeks, then in days. If the mode is smart or strict, then the all three fields are validated to their outer ranges. The date is then combined in a manner equivalent to creating a date on the first day of the requested year, then adding the amount in weeks and days to reach their values. If the mode is strict, the date is additionally validated to check that the day and week adjustment did not change the year.
  • YEAR, ALIGNED_WEEK_OF_YEAR and DAY_OF_WEEK - If all three are present, then they are combined to form a date. The approach is the same as described above for years and weeks in ALIGNED_DAY_OF_WEEK_IN_YEAR. The day-of-week is adjusted as the next or same matching day-of-week once the years and weeks have been handled.

The default implementation is suitable for most calendar systems. If YEAR_OF_ERA is found without an ERA then the last era in eras() is used. The implementation assumes a 7 day week, that the first day-of-month has the value 1, that first day-of-year has the value 1, and that the first of the month and year always exists.

Parameters
fieldValues the map of fields to values, which can be updated, not null
resolverStyle the requested type of resolve, not null
Returns
  • the resolved date, null if insufficient information to create a date
Throws
DateTimeException if the date cannot be resolved, typically because of a conflict in the input data

public String toString ()

Outputs this chronology as a String, using the chronology ID.

Returns
  • a string representation of this chronology, not null
