The hashCode() method of a LocalTime class is used to return hashCode for this time. The hashcode is always the same if the object doesn’t change. Hashcode is a unique code generated by the JVM at time of object creation. It can be used to perform some operation on hashing related algorithm like hashtable, hashmap etc. An object can also be searched with its unique code (hashcode).

Syntax:

public int hashCode()

Parameters: This method does not accept any parameter.

Return value: This method returns an integer value which is the hashCode.

Below programs illustrate the hashCode() method:

Program 1:




// Java program to demonstrate
// LocalTime.hashCode() method
  
import java.time.*;
  
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        // create a LocalTime object
        LocalTime time
            = LocalTime.parse("10:44:59.73");
  
        // get nano second field using getNano()
        int hashcode = time.hashCode();
  
        // print result
        System.out.println("hashCode: "
                           + hashcode);
    }
}

Output:

hashCode: 2074672050

Program 2:




// Java program to demonstrate
// LocalTime.hashCode() method
  
import java.time.*;
  
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        // create a LocalTime object
        LocalTime time
            = LocalTime.parse("18:00:01");
  
        // get nano second field using getNano()
        int hashcode = time.hashCode();
  
        // print result
        System.out.println("hashCode: "
                           + hashcode);
    }
}

Output:

hashCode: -1466552081
