LocalDateTime plusMonths() method in Java

Java 8Object Oriented ProgrammingProgramming

An immutable copy of a LocalDateTime object where some months are added to it can be obtained using the plusMonths() method in the LocalDateTime class in Java. This method requires a single parameter i.e. the number of months to be added and it returns the LocalDateTime object with the added months.

A program that demonstrates this is given as follows −

Example

 Live Demo

import java.time.*;
public class Demo {
   public static void main(String[] args) {
      LocalDateTime ldt = LocalDateTime.now();
      System.out.println("The current LocalDateTime is: " + ldt);
      System.out.println("The LocalDateTime with 5 months added is: " + ldt.plusMonths(5));
   }
}

Output

The current LocalDateTime is: 2019-02-16T11:30:28.398
The LocalDateTime with 5 months added is: 2019-07-16T11:30:28.398

Now let us understand the above program.

First the current LocalDateTime is displayed. Then an immutable copy of the LocalDateTime where 5 months are added is obtained using the plusMonths() method and this is displayed. A code snippet that demonstrates this is as follows −

LocalDateTime ldt = LocalDateTime.now();
System.out.println("The current LocalDateTime is: " + ldt);
System.out.println("The LocalDateTime with 5 months added is: " + ldt.plusMonths(5));
