ChronoLocalDateTime toInstant() method in Java with Examples

The toInstant() method of a ChronoLocalDateTime class is used to convert this ChronoLocalDateTime to an Instant. The method combines this ChronoLocalDateTime with the offset passed as parameters to calculate the Instant.

Syntax:

default Instant toInstant(ZoneOffset offset)

Parameters: This method accepts a parameters offset which is the zone offset.

Return value: This method returns Instant which is the Instant of this ChronoLocalDateTime

Below programs illustrate the toInstant() method:

                           + time.toInstant(zone));
    }
}
