public long get(TemporalUnit unit)

Parameters: This method accepts a parameter unit which is the TemporalUnit for which the value is to be fetched.

Return Value: This method returns a long value of the unit passed as the parameter.



Exception: This method throws:

  • DateTimeException: if the unit is not supported.
  • UnsupportedTemporalTypeException: if the unit is not supported.

Below examples illustrate the Duration.get() method:

Example 1:




// Java code to illustrate get() method
  
import java.time.Duration;
import java.time.temporal.*;
  
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // Get the text
        String time = "P2DT3H4M";
  
        // Duration using parse() method
        Duration duration = Duration.parse(time);
  
        // Duration using get() method
        long getSeconds
            = duration.get(ChronoUnit.SECONDS);
  
        System.out.println("Seconds: "
                           + getSeconds);
  
        // Duration using get() method
        long getNanos
            = duration.get(ChronoUnit.NANOS);
  
        System.out.println("Nanos: "
                           + getNanos);
    }
}
Output:
Seconds: 183840
Nanos: 0

Example 2:




// Java code to illustrate get() method
  
import java.time.Duration;
import java.time.temporal.*;
  
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // Get the text
        String time = "P2DT3H4M";
  
        // Duration using parse() method
        Duration duration
            = Duration.parse(time);
  
        try {
            // Duration using get() method
            long getMinutes
                = duration.get(ChronoUnit.MINUTES);
        }
        catch (Exception e) {
            System.out.println("Exception: " + e);
        }
    }
}
Output:
Exception:
 java.time.temporal.UnsupportedTemporalTypeException:
 Unsupported unit: Minutes
