Instant plusNanos() method in Java with Examples

The plusNanos() method of Instant class adds nanoseconds value passed as parameter to this instant and return the result as an instant object. This returned Instant is immutable.

Syntax:

public Instant plusNanos(long nanosToAdd)

Parameters: This method accepts one parameter nanosToAdd which is nanoseconds to be added.



Returns: This method returns Instant, not null.

Exception: This method throws following exceptions:

  • DateTimeException: if the result exceeds the maximum or minimum instant.
  • ArithmeticException: if numeric overflow occurs.

Below programs illustrate the plusNanos() method:
