Java8 Date Time API

When working with date and time objects in Java 8 you will probably need to work with date periods and time durations. A date period is measured in days, months, and years, while a time duration is measured in hours, minutes, and seconds. A duration can be computed using the Duration class, and a period can be computed using the Period class. Both classes are located in the java.time package.

Example of Date Time API

import java.time.Duration;
import java.time.Instant;
import java.time.LocalDate;
import java.time.LocalDateTime;
import java.time.LocalTime;
import java.time.Month;
import java.time.Period;
import java.time.format.DateTimeFormatter;
public class DateTimeApi {

public static void main(String[] args) {

LocalDate july4th2017 = LocalDate.of(2017, Month.JULY, 4);
LocalDate august10th2018 = LocalDate.of(2018, Month.AUGUST, 10);
DateTimeFormatter format=DateTimeFormatter.ofPattern("MM/dd/yy");
Period period=Period.between(july4th2017, august10th2018);

System.out.format("Period between %s and %s is %d year,
%d month, %d days \n" ,
july4th2017.format(format), august10th2018.format(format),
period.getYears(), period.getMonths(), period.getDays());

//Current timestamp
Instant timestamp =;
System.out.println("Current Timestamp = "+timestamp);

//Instant from timestamp
Instant specificTime = Instant.ofEpochMilli(timestamp.toEpochMilli());
System.out.println("Specific Time = "+specificTime);

//Duration example
Duration thirtyDay = Duration.ofDays(30);

LocalDateTime dateOfBirthAndTime = LocalDateTime.of(LocalDate.of(1985,
Month.SEPTEMBER, 20), LocalTime.of(22, 10));
LocalDateTime deathDateAndTime =;
long duration = Duration.between(dateOfBirthAndTime,

System.out.println("Number of days alive = " + duration);
