Period hashCode() method in Java

Java 8Object Oriented ProgrammingProgramming

The hash code value of the Period can be obtained using the hashCode() method in the Period class in Java. This method requires no parameters and it returns the hash code value of 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 hash code is: " + p.hashCode());
}
}

Output

The Period is: P5Y7M15D
The hash code is: 984837

Now let us understand the above program.

First the Period is displayed. Then the hash code value of the Period is obtained using the hashCode() 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 hash code is: " + p.hashCode());
