Java Clock class is part of Date Time API, java.time.Clock, of Java. The Java Date Time API was added from Java version 8.
getZone() method of Clock class returns the time-zone used to create dates and times of Clock class. Every Clock class needs a Time Zone for obtaining the current instant of time and convert that instance to a date or time. So this method returns the time-zone used for this process.
public abstract ZoneId getZone()
Returns Value: This Method returns the time-zone used to create Clock class.
Input:: a clock class Object e.g Clock.systemUTC() Output:: TimeZone e.g. Z Explanation:: when Clock.getZone() is called, then it returns a Time Zone used in Class Object
Below programs illustrates getZone() method of java.time.Clock class:
Program 1: Get the TimeZone of the Clock obejct, created with systemDefaultZone, using getZone()
ZoneId for class SystemClock[Etc/UTC] is Etc/UTC
Program 2:Get TimeZone of Clock object, with Zone “Asia/calcutta”, using getZone().
ZoneId for clock is Asia/Calcutta
