ChronoLocalDateTime toInstant() method in Java with Examples

  • Last Updated : 28 May, 2019

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:



Program 1:




// Java program to demonstrate
// ChronoLocalDateTime.toInstant() method
  
import java.time.*;
import java.time.chrono.*;
  
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // create ChronoLocalDateTime object
        ChronoLocalDateTime time
            = LocalDateTime
                  .parse("2019-12-31T19:15:30");
  
        // print ChronoLocalDateTime
        System.out.println("ChronoLocalDateTime: "
                           + time);
  
        // create ZoneId
        ZoneOffset zone = ZoneOffset.of("Z");
  
        // print ZoneId
        System.out.println("Passed ZoneOffset: "
                           + zone);
  
        // print result
        System.out.println("Instant: "
                           + time.toInstant(zone));
    }
}
Output:
ChronoLocalDateTime: 2019-12-31T19:15:30
Passed ZoneOffset: Z
Instant: 2019-12-31T19:15:30Z

Program 2:




// Java program to demonstrate
// ChronoLocalDateTime.toInstant() method
  
import java.time.*;
import java.time.chrono.*;
  
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // create ChronoLocalDateTime object
        ChronoLocalDateTime time
            = LocalDateTime.parse(
                "2018-10-25T23:12:31.123");
  
        // print ChronoLocalDateTime
        System.out.println("ChronoLocalDateTime: "
                           + time);
  
        // create ZoneId
        ZoneOffset zone = ZoneOffset.of("Z");
  
        // print ZoneId
        System.out.println("Passed ZoneOffset: "
                           + zone);
  
        // print result
        System.out.println("Instant: "
                           + time.toInstant(zone));
    }
}
Output:
ChronoLocalDateTime: 2018-10-25T23:12:31.123
Passed ZoneOffset: Z
Instant: 2018-10-25T23:12:31.123Z
