LocalDate plusYears() method in Java

Java 8Object Oriented ProgrammingProgramming

An immutable copy of the LocalDate where the years are added to it can be obtained using the plusYears() method in the LocalDate class in Java. This method requires a single parameter i.e. the number of years to be added and it returns the instant with the added years.

A program that demonstrates this is given as follows −

Example

Live Demo

import java.time.*;
public class Demo {
public static void main(String[] args) {
LocalDate ld1 = LocalDate.parse("2019-02-14");
System.out.println("The LocalDate is: " + ld1);
LocalDate ld2 = ld1.plusYears(3);
System.out.println("The LocalDate after adding 3 years is: " + ld2);
}
}

Output

The LocalDate is: 2019-02-14
The LocalDate after adding 3 years is: 2022-02-14

Now let us understand the above program.

First, LocalDate is displayed. Then an immutable copy of the LocalDate where 3 years are added is obtained using the plusYears() method and this is displayed. A code snippet that demonstrates this is as follows −

LocalDate ld1 = LocalDate.parse("2019-02-14");
System.out.println("The LocalDate is: " + ld1);
LocalDate ld2 = ld1.plusYears(3);
System.out.println("The LocalDate after adding 3 years is: " + ld2);
