java.time.Clock.tickMinutes(ZoneId zone) method is a static method of Clock class which returns the current instant ticking in whole minutes using best available system clock and the time-zone of that instant is same as the time-zone passed as a parameter.
Nanosecond and second fields of the clock are set to zero to round the instant in the whole minute. The underlying clock is the best system clock which is same as system (ZoneId). A duration of zero or one nanosecond would have no effect on base clock method. These will return the same base clock.
The returned clock is also immutable, thread-safe and Serializable and this method is equivalent to tick(system(zone), Duration.ofMinutes(1)).
public static Clock tickMinutes(ZoneId zone)
Parameters: This method takes a mandatory parameter zone which is the time-zone used to round off instant of a clock in the whole minute.
Return Value: This method returns a clock that returns the current instant ticking in whole minutes
with zone same as zone passed as parameter.
Code: ZoneId zoneId = ZoneId.of("Asia/Calcutta"); Clock clock = Clock.tickMinutes(zoneId); System.out.println(clock.instant()); Output: 2018-08-21T19:55:00Z Expalnation:: method tickMinutes() returns the instant which tick in a whole minute. It means the second and nanosecond fields are zero, which can be visualized as the second field is empty in output.
Below programs illustrates tickMinutes() method of java.time.Clock class:
Program 1: When Clock is created with Zone “Asia/Calcutta” for printing instant of clock ticking in whole minute.
Program 2: Print the date and Time of clock with zone “Europe/Paris” and clock ticks per whole minute.
