# Period ofYears() method in Java

Java 8Object Oriented ProgrammingProgramming

The Period can be obtained with the given number of years using the ofYears() method in the Period class in Java. This method requires a single parameter i.e. the number of years and it returns the Period object with the given number of years.

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) {
int years = 3;
Period p = Period.ofYears(years);
System.out.println("The Period is: " + p);
}
}

## Output

The Period is: P3Y

Now let us understand the above program.

The Period is obtained with the given number of years using the ofYears() method and then it is printed. A code snippet that demonstrates this is as follows −

int years = 3;
Period p = Period.ofYears(years);
System.out.println("The Period is: " + p);
