Instant now() Method in Java

Java 8Object Oriented ProgrammingProgramming

The current instant from the system UTC clock can be obtained using the now() method in the Instant class in Java. This method requires no parameters and it returns the current instant from the system UTC clock.

A program that demonstrates this is given as follows −

Example

 Live Demo

import java.time.*;
public class Demo {
   public static void main(String[] args) {
      Instant i = Instant.now();
      System.out.println("The current Instant is: " + i);
   }
}

Output

The current Instant is: 2019-02-12T11:49:22.455Z

Now let us understand the above program.

The current instant from the system UTC clock is obtained using the now() method and then it is printed. A code snippet that demonstrates this is as follows −

Instant i = Instant.now();
System.out.println("The current Instant is: " + i);
