IsoChronology dateEpochDay() method in Java with Example

The dateEpochDay() method of java.time.chrono.IsoChronology class is used get the local date according to ISO system from the Epoch Day.

Syntax:

public IsoDate dateEpochDay(long epochDay)

Parameter: This method takes the epochDay of type long as a parameter.

Return Value: This method returns the IsoDate according to Hijrah calendar system from the another TemporalAccessor object.

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