HijrahDate plus(long, TemporalUnit) method in Java with Example
  • Last Updated : 27 Feb, 2020

The plus() method of java.time.chrono.HijrahDate class is used to get the hijrah date after adding an amount of temporal accessor unit with the current hijrah date.

Syntax:

public HijrahDate plus(long amount,
                       TemporalUnit unit)

Parameter: This method takes the following argument as a parameter:

  • amount: which is the amount of temporal unit which is going to be added with the current hijrah date.
  • unit: which is the object of temporal unit or chrono unit.

Return Value: This method returns the Hijrah date after adding an amount of temporal accessor unit with the current Hijrah date.

Below are the examples to illustrate the plus() method:



Example 1:

Java




// Java program to demonstrate
// plus() method
  
import java.util.*;
import java.io.*;
import java.time.*;
import java.time.chrono.*;
import java.time.temporal.*;
  
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] argv)
    {
        try {
            // creating and initializing
            // HijrahDate Object
            HijrahDate hidate
                = HijrahDate.of(1345, 06, 23);
  
            // display the result
            System.out.println("old hijrah date : "
                               + hidate);
  
            // adding some amount in hijrah date
            // by using minus() method
            HijrahDate newdate
                = hidate.plus(
                    22,
                    ChronoUnit.DAYS);
  
            // display the result
            System.out.println("new hijrah date : "
                               + newdate);
        }
        catch (DateTimeException e) {
            System.out.println("passed parameter can"
                               + " not form a date");
            System.out.println("Exception thrown: "
                               + e);
        }
    }
}


Output:

old hijrah date : Hijrah-umalqura AH 1345-06-23
new hijrah date : Hijrah-umalqura AH 1345-07-16

Example 2:

Java




// Java program to demonstrate
// plus() method
  
import java.util.*;
import java.io.*;
import java.time.*;
import java.time.chrono.*;
import java.time.temporal.*;
  
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] argv)
    {
        try {
            // creating and initializing
            // HijrahDate Object
            HijrahDate hidate
                = HijrahDate.of(1345, 06, 23);
  
            // display the result
            System.out.println("old hijrah date : "
                               + hidate);
  
            // adding some amount in hijrah date
            // by using minus() method
            HijrahDate newdate
                = hidate.plus(
                    4,
                    ChronoUnit.DECADES);
  
            // display the result
            System.out.println("new hijrah date : "
                               + newdate);
        }
        catch (DateTimeException e) {
            System.out.println("passed parameter can"
                               + " not form a date");
            System.out.println("Exception thrown: "
                               + e);
        }
    }
}


Output:

old hijrah date : Hijrah-umalqura AH 1345-06-23
new hijrah date : Hijrah-umalqura AH 1385-06-23
