LocalDate plus() method in Java with Examples

In LocalDate class, there are two types of plus() method depending upon the parameters passed to it.

plus(long amountToAdd, TemporalUnit unit)

plus() method of a LocalDate class used to return a copy of this LocalDate with the specified amount of unit added to LocalDate.If it is not possible to add the amount, because the unit is not supported or for some other reason, an exception is thrown.This instance is immutable and unaffected by this method call.

Syntax:



public LocalDate plus(long amountToAdd,
                      TemporalUnit unit)

Parameters: This method accepts two parameters:

  • amountToAdd: which is the amount of the unit to add to the result, may be negative
  • unit: which is the unit of the amount to add.

Return value: This method returns LocalDate based on this date-time with the specified amount added.

        // add 300 Months to LocalDate
        LocalDate value
            = zonedlt.plus(300, ChronoUnit.MONTHS);
  
        // print result
        System.out.println("LocalDate after adding Months : "
                           + value);
    }
}
