LocalTime now(clock) method in Java with Examples
  • Last Updated : 12 May, 2020

The now(Clock clock) method of the LocalTime class in Java is used to get the current time from the specified clock.

Syntax:

public static LocalTime now(
    Clock clock)

Parameters: This method accepts clock as parameter which represents the clock to use.

Return value: This method returns the current time.

Below programs illustrate the now(Clock clock) method of LocalTime in Java:



Program 1:




// Java program to demonstrate
// LocalTime.now(Clock clock) method
  
import java.time.*;
import java.time.temporal.*;
  
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // apply now(Clock clock) method
        // of LocalTime class
        LocalTime time = LocalTime.now(
            Clock.systemUTC());
  
        // print time
        System.out.println("Time: "
                           + time);
    }
}


Output:

Time: 21:04:28.811

Program 2:




// Java program to demonstrate
// LocalTime.now(Clock clock) method
  
import java.time.*;
import java.time.temporal.*;
  
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // apply now(Clock clock) method
        // of LocalTime class
        LocalTime time = LocalTime.now(
            Clock.systemUTC());
  
        // print time
        System.out.println("Time: "
                           + time);
    }
}


Output:

Time: 21:05:21.192

Above two examples are taken to show the variance in result for same program according to time progression.
