How to find the number of days in a month of a particular year in Java?


A GregorianCalendar is a concrete subclass of Calendar class and it provides the standard calendar system used by most of the world. In Java, this GregorianCalendar can handle both the Gregorian calendar as well as Julian calendar. We can determine or find the number of days in a month of a particular year by using the getActualMaximum() method of GregorianCalendar class. This method returns the maximum value that GregorianCalendar field can have. The parameter can be any field of a Calendar class.

Syntax

public int getActualMaximum(int field)

Example

import java.util.*;

public class NoOfDaysInAMonthOfAYearTest {
   public static void main(String []args) {
      for (int i = 2000; i < 2018; i++) {
         Calendar calendar = new GregorianCalendar(i, Calendar.FEBRUARY, 1);
         int numberOfDays = calendar.getActualMaximum(Calendar.DAY_OF_MONTH);
         System.out.println("February " + i + ": " + numberOfDays + " days");
      }
   }
}

Output

February 2000: 29 days
February 2001: 28 days
