The dateEpochDay() method of java.time.chrono.HijrahChronology class is used get the local date according to Hijrah calendar system from the Epoch Day.
Syntax: 
 

public HijrahDate dateEpochDay(long epochDay)

Parameter: This method takes the epochDay of type long as a parameter.
Return Value: This method returns the local date according to Hijrah calendar system from the another TemporalAccessor object .
Exception: This method throws DateTimeException if the given epoch day is unable to form structured date.
Below are the examples to illustrate the dateEpochDay() method:
Example 1: 
 

Java




// Java program to demonstrate
// dateEpochDay() method
 
import java.util.*;
import java.io.*;
import java.time.*;
import java.time.chrono.*;
 
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] argv)
    {
        try {
            // creating and initializing  HijrahDate Object
            HijrahDate hidate = HijrahDate.now();
 
            // getting HijrahChronology used in HijrahDate
            HijrahChronology crono = hidate.getChronology();
 
            // display the result
            System.out.println("current HijrahDate is: "
                               + hidate);
 
            // getting HijrahDate for the
            // given TemporalAccessor object
            // by using date() method
            hidate = crono.dateEpochDay(23456);
 
            // display the result
            System.out.println("\nHijrahDate(according "
                               + "to ephochday) is: "
                               + hidate);
        }
        catch (DateTimeException e) {
            System.out.println("passed parameter can"
                               + " not form a date");
            System.out.println("Exception thrown: " + e);
        }
    }
}
Output
current HijrahDate is: Hijrah-umalqura AH 1442-11-15

HijrahDate(according to ephochday) is: Hijrah-umalqura AH 1456-01-01

Example 2: 
 

Java




// Java program to demonstrate
// dateEpochDay() method
 
import java.util.*;
import java.io.*;
import java.time.*;
import java.time.chrono.*;
 
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] argv)
    {
        try {
            // creating and initializing  HijrahDate Object
            HijrahDate hidate = HijrahDate.now();
 
            // getting HijrahChronology used in HijrahDate
            HijrahChronology crono = hidate.getChronology();
 
            // display the result
            System.out.println("current HijrahDate is: "
                               + hidate);
 
            // getting HijrahDate for the
            // given TemporalAccessor object
            // by using date() method
            hidate = crono.dateEpochDay(234568);
 
            // display the result
            System.out.println("HijrahDate(according "
                               + "to ephochday) is: "
                               + hidate);
        }
        catch (DateTimeException e) {
            System.out.println("\npassed parameter can"
                               + " not form a date");
            System.out.println("Exception thrown: " + e);
        }
    }
}
Output
current HijrahDate is: Hijrah-umalqura AH 1442-11-15

passed parameter can not form a date
Exception thrown: java.time.DateTimeException: Hijrah date out of range
