Clock tickSeconds() method in Java with Examples

java.time.Clock.tickSeconds(ZoneId zone) method is a static method of Clock class which returns a clock that returns the current instant ticking in whole Seconds using best available system clock and zone of instant is same as the instant passed as a parameter.

The returned clock is also immutable, thread-safe and Serializable and this method is equivalent to tick(system(zone), Duration.ofSeconds(1)).

Syntax:

public static Clock tickSeconds(ZoneId zone)

Parameters: This method takes a mandatory parameter zone which is the time-zone to use to round off instant of a clock in the whole Second.

Return Value: This method returns a clock that returns the current instant ticking in whole Second with zone same as zone passed as parameter.



Example:

Code:
ZoneId zoneId = ZoneId.of("Asia/Calcutta");
Clock clock = Clock.tickSeconds(zoneId);
System.out.println(clock.instant());

Output:
2018-08-21T20:22:32Z

Expalnation::
method tickSeconds() returns the instant 
which tick in a whole Second means 
nanosecond field is zero.

Below programs illustrates tickSeconds() method of java.time.Clock class:

Program 1; When Clock is created with Zone kolkata and printing instant of clock ticking in whole Second.
