LocalTime from() method in Java with Examples

The from() method of a LocalTime class helps to get instance of LocalTime from TemporalAccessor object passed as parameter to method. A TemporalAccessor represents an arbitrary set of date and time information and this method helps to get a LocalTime based on the specified TemporalAccessor object.

Syntax:

public static LocalTime from(TemporalAccessor temporal)

Parameters: This method accepts a single parameter temporal which is the temporal object. It should not be null.



Return value: This method returns the local time from temporal object, not null

Exception: This method throws a DateTimeException if unable to convert to a LocalTime.

Below programs illustrate the from() method:

        // create a ZonedDateTime object
        ZonedDateTime zonedDateTime
            = ZonedDateTime.now();
  
        // apply form()
        LocalTime value
            = LocalTime.from(zonedDateTime);
  
        // print result
        System.out.println("LocalTime value : "
                           + value);
    }
