LocalTime

public final class LocalTime
extends Object implements Temporal, TemporalAdjuster, Comparable<LocalTime>, Serializable

java.lang.Object
   ↳ java.time.LocalTime


A time without a time-zone in the ISO-8601 calendar system, such as 10:15:30.

LocalTime is an immutable date-time object that represents a time, often viewed as hour-minute-second. Time is represented to nanosecond precision. For example, the value "13:45.30.123456789" can be stored in a LocalTime.

This class does not store or represent a date or time-zone. Instead, it is a description of the local time as seen on a wall clock. It cannot represent an instant on the time-line without additional information such as an offset or time-zone.

The ISO-8601 calendar system is the modern civil calendar system used today in most of the world. This API assumes that all calendar systems use the same representation, this class, for time-of-day.

Public methods

adjustInto

added in API level 26
Temporal adjustInto (Temporal temporal)

Adjusts the specified temporal object to have the same time as this object.

This returns a temporal object of the same observable type as the input with the time changed to be the same as this.

The adjustment is equivalent to using with(TemporalField, long) passing NANO_OF_DAY as the field.

In most cases, it is clearer to reverse the calling pattern by using with(TemporalAdjuster):

   // these two lines are equivalent, but the second approach is recommended
   temporal = thisLocalTime.adjustInto(temporal);
   temporal = temporal.with(thisLocalTime);
 

This instance is immutable and unaffected by this method call.

Parameters
temporal Temporal: the target object to be adjusted, not null

Returns
Temporal the adjusted object, not null

Throws
DateTimeException if unable to make the adjustment
ArithmeticException if numeric overflow occurs

atDate

added in API level 26
LocalDateTime atDate (LocalDate date)

Combines this time with a date to create a LocalDateTime.

This returns a LocalDateTime formed from this time at the specified date. All possible combinations of date and time are valid.

Parameters
date LocalDate: the date to combine with, not null

Returns
LocalDateTime the local date-time formed from this time and the specified date, not null

atOffset

added in API level 26
OffsetTime atOffset (ZoneOffset offset)

Combines this time with an offset to create an OffsetTime.

This returns an OffsetTime formed from this time at the specified offset. All possible combinations of time and offset are valid.

Parameters
offset ZoneOffset: the offset to combine with, not null

Returns
OffsetTime the offset time formed from this time and the specified offset, not null

compareTo

added in API level 26
int compareTo (LocalTime other)

Compares this time to another time.

The comparison is based on the time-line position of the local times within a day. It is "consistent with equals", as defined by Comparable.

Parameters
other LocalTime: the other time to compare to, not null

Returns
int the comparator value, negative if less, positive if greater

Throws
NullPointerException if other is null

equals

added in API level 26
boolean equals (Object obj)

Checks if this time is equal to another time.

The comparison is based on the time-line position of the time within a day.

Only objects of type LocalTime are compared, other types return false. To compare the date of two TemporalAccessor instances, use NANO_OF_DAY as a comparator.

Parameters
obj Object: the object to check, null returns false

Returns
boolean true if this is equal to the other time

format

added in API level 26
String format (DateTimeFormatter formatter)

Formats this time using the specified formatter.

This time will be passed to the formatter to produce a string.

Parameters
formatter DateTimeFormatter: the formatter to use, not null

Returns
String the formatted time string, not null

Throws
DateTimeException if an error occurs during printing

from

added in API level 26
LocalTime from (TemporalAccessor temporal)

Obtains an instance of LocalTime from a temporal object.

This obtains a local time based on the specified temporal. A TemporalAccessor represents an arbitrary set of date and time information, which this factory converts to an instance of LocalTime.

The conversion uses the localTime() query, which relies on extracting the NANO_OF_DAY field.

This method matches the signature of the functional interface TemporalQuery allowing it to be used as a query via method reference, LocalTime::from.

Parameters
temporal TemporalAccessor: the temporal object to convert, not null

Returns
LocalTime the local time, not null

Throws
DateTimeException if unable to convert to a LocalTime

get

int get (TemporalField field)

Gets the value of the specified field from this time as an int.

This queries this time for the value of the specified field. The returned value will always be within the valid range of values for the field. If it is not possible to return the value, because the field is not supported or for some other reason, an exception is thrown.

If the field is a ChronoField then the query is implemented here. The supported fields will return valid values based on this time, except NANO_OF_DAY and MICRO_OF_DAY which are too large to fit in an int and throw a DateTimeException. All other ChronoField instances will throw an UnsupportedTemporalTypeException.

If the field is not a ChronoField, then the result of this method is obtained by invoking TemporalField.getFrom(TemporalAccessor) passing this as the argument. Whether the value can be obtained, and what the value represents, is determined by the field.

Parameters
field TemporalField: the field to get, not null

Returns
int the value for the field

Throws
DateTimeException if a value for the field cannot be obtained or the value is outside the range of valid values for the field
UnsupportedTemporalTypeException if the field is not supported or the range of values exceeds an int
ArithmeticException if numeric overflow occurs

Throws
NullPointerException if other is null

isSupported

added in API level 26
boolean isSupported (TemporalUnit unit)

Checks if the specified unit is supported.

This checks if the specified unit can be added to, or subtracted from, this time. If false, then calling the plus(long, TemporalUnit) and minus methods will throw an exception.

If the unit is a ChronoUnit then the query is implemented here. The supported units are:

  • NANOS
  • MICROS
  • MILLIS
  • SECONDS
  • MINUTES
  • HOURS
  • HALF_DAYS
All other ChronoUnit instances will return false.

If the unit is not a ChronoUnit, then the result of this method is obtained by invoking TemporalUnit.isSupportedBy(Temporal) passing this as the argument. Whether the unit is supported is determined by the unit.

ValueRange range (TemporalField field)

Gets the range of valid values for the specified field.

The range object expresses the minimum and maximum valid values for a field. This time is used to enhance the accuracy of the returned range. If it is not possible to return the range, because the field is not supported or for some other reason, an exception is thrown.

If the field is a ChronoField then the query is implemented here. The supported fields will return appropriate range instances. All other ChronoField instances will throw an UnsupportedTemporalTypeException.

If the field is not a ChronoField, then the result of this method is obtained by invoking TemporalField.rangeRefinedBy(TemporalAccessor) passing this as the argument. Whether the range can be obtained is determined by the field.

Parameters
field TemporalField: the field to query the range for, not null

Returns
ValueRange the range of valid values for the field, not null

Throws
DateTimeException if the range for the field cannot be obtained
UnsupportedTemporalTypeException if the field is not supported

toNanoOfDay

added in API level 26
long toNanoOfDay ()

Extracts the time as nanos of day, from 0 to 24 * 60 * 60 * 1,000,000,000 - 1.

Returns
long the nano of day equivalent to this time

toSecondOfDay

added in API level 26
int toSecondOfDay ()

Extracts the time as seconds of day, from 0 to 24 * 60 * 60 - 1.

Returns
int the second-of-day equivalent to this time

toString

added in API level 26
String toString ()

Outputs this time as a String, such as 10:15.

The output will be one of the following ISO-8601 formats:

  • HH:mm
  • HH:mm:ss
  • HH:mm:ss.SSS
  • HH:mm:ss.SSSSSS
  • HH:mm:ss.SSSSSSSSS
The format used will be the shortest that outputs the full value of the time where the omitted parts are implied to be zero.

Returns
String a string representation of this time, not null

truncatedTo

added in API level 26
LocalTime truncatedTo (TemporalUnit unit)

Returns a copy of this LocalTime with the time truncated.

Truncation returns a copy of the original time with fields smaller than the specified unit set to zero. For example, truncating with the minutes unit will set the second-of-minute and nano-of-second field to zero.

The unit must have a duration that divides into the length of a standard day without remainder. This includes all supplied time units on ChronoUnit and DAYS. Other units throw an exception.

This instance is immutable and unaffected by this method call.

Parameters
unit TemporalUnit: the unit to truncate to, not null

Returns
LocalTime a LocalTime based on this time with the time truncated, not null

Throws
DateTimeException if unable to truncate
UnsupportedTemporalTypeException if the unit is not supported

until

added in API level 26
long until (Temporal endExclusive, 
                TemporalUnit unit)

Calculates the amount of time until another time in terms of the specified unit.

This calculates the amount of time between two LocalTime objects in terms of a single TemporalUnit. The start and end points are this and the specified time. The result will be negative if the end is before the start. The Temporal passed to this method is converted to a LocalTime using from(TemporalAccessor). For example, the amount in hours between two times can be calculated using startTime.until(endTime, HOURS).

The calculation returns a whole number, representing the number of complete units between the two times. For example, the amount in hours between 11:30 and 13:29 will only be one hour as it is one minute short of two hours.

There are two equivalent ways of using this method. The first is to invoke this method. The second is to use between(Temporal, Temporal):

   // these two lines are equivalent
   amount = start.until(end, MINUTES);
   amount = MINUTES.between(start, end);
 
The choice should be made based on which makes the code more readable.

The calculation is implemented in this method for ChronoUnit. The units NANOS, MICROS, MILLIS, SECONDS, MINUTES, HOURS and HALF_DAYS are supported. Other ChronoUnit values will throw an exception.

If the unit is not a ChronoUnit, then the result of this method is obtained by invoking TemporalUnit.between(Temporal, Temporal) passing this as the first argument and the converted input temporal as the second argument.

This instance is immutable and unaffected by this method call.

Parameters
endExclusive Temporal: the end time, exclusive, which is converted to a LocalTime, not null

unit TemporalUnit: the unit to measure the amount in, not null

Returns
long the amount of time between this time and the end time

Throws
DateTimeException if the amount cannot be calculated, or the end temporal cannot be converted to a LocalTime
UnsupportedTemporalTypeException if the unit is not supported
ArithmeticException if numeric overflow occurs

with

added in API level 26
LocalTime with (TemporalField field, 
                long newValue)

Returns a copy of this time with the specified field set to a new value.

This returns a LocalTime, based on this one, with the value for the specified field changed. This can be used to change any supported field, such as the hour, minute or second. If it is not possible to set the value, because the field is not supported or for some other reason, an exception is thrown.

If the field is a ChronoField then the adjustment is implemented here. The supported fields behave as follows:

  • NANO_OF_SECOND - Returns a LocalTime with the specified nano-of-second. The hour, minute and second will be unchanged.
  • NANO_OF_DAY - Returns a LocalTime with the specified nano-of-day. This completely replaces the time and is equivalent to ofNanoOfDay(long).
  • MICRO_OF_SECOND - Returns a LocalTime with the nano-of-second replaced by the specified micro-of-second multiplied by 1,000. The hour, minute and second will be unchanged.
  • MICRO_OF_DAY - Returns a LocalTime with the specified micro-of-day. This completely replaces the time and is equivalent to using ofNanoOfDay(long) with the micro-of-day multiplied by 1,000.
  • MILLI_OF_SECOND - Returns a LocalTime with the nano-of-second replaced by the specified milli-of-second multiplied by 1,000,000. The hour, minute and second will be unchanged.
  • MILLI_OF_DAY - Returns a LocalTime with the specified milli-of-day. This completely replaces the time and is equivalent to using ofNanoOfDay(long) with the milli-of-day multiplied by 1,000,000.
  • SECOND_OF_MINUTE - Returns a LocalTime with the specified second-of-minute. The hour, minute and nano-of-second will be unchanged.
  • SECOND_OF_DAY - Returns a LocalTime with the specified second-of-day. The nano-of-second will be unchanged.
  • MINUTE_OF_HOUR - Returns a LocalTime with the specified minute-of-hour. The hour, second-of-minute and nano-of-second will be unchanged.
  • MINUTE_OF_DAY - Returns a LocalTime with the specified minute-of-day. The second-of-minute and nano-of-second will be unchanged.
  • HOUR_OF_AMPM - Returns a LocalTime with the specified hour-of-am-pm. The AM/PM, minute-of-hour, second-of-minute and nano-of-second will be unchanged.
  • CLOCK_HOUR_OF_AMPM - Returns a LocalTime with the specified clock-hour-of-am-pm. The AM/PM, minute-of-hour, second-of-minute and nano-of-second will be unchanged.
  • HOUR_OF_DAY - Returns a LocalTime with the specified hour-of-day. The minute-of-hour, second-of-minute and nano-of-second will be unchanged.
  • CLOCK_HOUR_OF_DAY - Returns a LocalTime with the specified clock-hour-of-day. The minute-of-hour, second-of-minute and nano-of-second will be unchanged.
  • AMPM_OF_DAY - Returns a LocalTime with the specified AM/PM. The hour-of-am-pm, minute-of-hour, second-of-minute and nano-of-second will be unchanged.

In all cases, if the new value is outside the valid range of values for the field then a DateTimeException will be thrown.

All other ChronoField instances will throw an UnsupportedTemporalTypeException.

If the field is not a ChronoField, then the result of this method is obtained by invoking TemporalField.adjustInto(Temporal, long) passing this as the argument. In this case, the field determines whether and how to adjust the instant.

This instance is immutable and unaffected by this method call.

Parameters
field TemporalField: the field to set in the result, not null

newValue long: the new value of the field in the result

Returns
LocalTime a LocalTime based on this with the specified field set, not null

Throws
DateTimeException if the field cannot be set
UnsupportedTemporalTypeException if the field is not supported
ArithmeticException if numeric overflow occurs

with

added in API level 27
LocalTime with (TemporalAdjuster adjuster)

Returns an adjusted copy of this time.

This returns a LocalTime, based on this one, with the time adjusted. The adjustment takes place using the specified adjuster strategy object. Read the documentation of the adjuster to understand what adjustment will be made.

A simple adjuster might simply set the one of the fields, such as the hour field. A more complex adjuster might set the time to the last hour of the day.

The result of this method is obtained by invoking the adjustInto(Temporal) method on the specified adjuster passing this as the argument.

This instance is immutable and unaffected by this method call.

Parameters
adjuster TemporalAdjuster: the adjuster to use, not null

Returns
LocalTime a LocalTime based on this with the adjustment made, not null

Throws
DateTimeException if the adjustment cannot be made
ArithmeticException if numeric overflow occurs
