Duration between(Temporal, Temporal) method in Java with Examples

The between(Temporal) method of Duration Class in java.time package is used to get a Duration in between the two Temporal objects passed as the parameter. The first parameter is inclusive whereas the second parameter is exclusive of the calculation. If the objects are of different types, then the duration is calculated based on the type of the first object.

Syntax:

public static Duration between(Temporal startDuration, Temporal endDuration)

Parameters: This method accepts two parameters:



  • startDuration: which is the start Instant to be calculated. It is inclusive in the calculation. It should not be null.
  • endDuration: which is the end Instant to be calculated. It is exclusive in the calculation. It should not be null.

Return Value: This method returns a Duration representing the time passed in between the instants passed as the parameters.

Exception: This method throws:

  • DateTimeException: if the seconds between the temporals cannot be obtained.
  • ArithmeticException: if the calculation exceeds the capacity of Duration.
