# LocalDate plus() method in Java

An immutable copy of a LocalDate where the required duration is added to it can be obtained using the plus() method in the LocalDate class in Java. This method requires two parameters i.e. the duration to be added and the TemporalUnit of the duration. Also, it returns the LocalDate object with the required duration added to it.

A program that demonstrates this is given as follows −

## Example

Live Demo

import java.time.*;
import java.time.temporal.*;
public class Demo {
public static void main(String[] args) {
LocalDate ld = LocalDate.parse("2019-02-15");
System.out.println("The LocalDate is: " + ld);
System.out.println("LocalDate after adding 10 days is: " + ld.plus(10, ChronoUnit.DAYS));
}
}

## Output

The LocalDate is: 2019-02-15
LocalDate after adding 10 days is: 2019-02-25

Now let us understand the above program.

First the LocalDate is displayed. Then an immutable copy of the LocalDate where 10 days are added to it is obtained using the plus() method and this is displayed. A code snippet that demonstrates this is as follows −

LocalDate ld = LocalDate.parse("2019-02-15");
System.out.println("The LocalDate is: " + ld);
System.out.println("LocalDate after adding 10 days is: " + ld.plus(10, ChronoUnit.DAYS));
