Period getYears() method in Java

Java 8Object Oriented ProgrammingProgramming

The number of years for a particular Period can be obtained using the getYears() method in the Period class in Java. This method requires no parameters and it returns the number of years in the Period.

A program that demonstrates this is given as follows

Example

 Live Demo

import java.time.Period;
public class Demo {
   public static void main(String[] args) {
      String period = "P5Y7M15D";
      Period p = Period.parse(period);
      System.out.println("The Period is: " + p);
      System.out.println("The number of years are: " + p.getYears());
   }
}

Output

The Period is: P5Y7M15D
The number of years are: 5

Now let us understand the above program.

First the Period is displayed. Then the number of years for the Period are obtained using the getYears() method and displayed. A code snippet that demonstrates this is as follows:

String period = "P5Y7M15D";
Period p = Period.parse(period);
System.out.println("The Period is: " + p);
System.out.println("The number of years are: " + p.getYears());
