LocalDateTime until() Method in Java with Examples
until() method of the LocalDateTime class used to calculate the amount of time between two LocalDateTime objects using TemporalUnit. The start and end points are this and the specified LocalDateTime passed as a parameter. The result will be negative if the end is before the start. The calculation returns a whole number, representing the number of complete units between the two LocalDateTime. This instance is immutable and unaffected by this method call.
public long until(Temporal endExclusive, TemporalUnit unit)
Parameters: This method accepts two parameters endExclusive which is the end date, exclusive, which is converted to a LocalDateTime and unit which is the unit to measure the amount.
Return value: This method returns the amount of time between this LocalDateTime and the end LocalDateTime.
Exception:This method throws following Exceptions:
- DateTimeException – if the amount cannot be calculated, or the ending temporal cannot be converted to a LocalDateTime.
- UnsupportedTemporalTypeException – if the unit is not supported.
- ArithmeticException – if numeric overflow occurs.
Below programs illustrate the until() method:
