The plusYears() method of OffsetDateTime class in Java returns a copy of this OffsetDateTime with the specified number of years added to the parsed date and time.

Syntax:

public OffsetDateTime plusYears(long years)

Parameter: This method accepts a single parameter years which specifies the years to be added to the parsed date. It can be negative also, in that case, it subtracts the number of years to it.

Return Value: It returns an OffsetDateTime based on this date-time with the years added and not null.

Exceptions: The program throws a DateTimeException when it exceeds the supported data and time range.

Below programs illustrate the plusYears() method:

Program 1:




// Java program to demonstrate the plusYears() method
  
import java.time.OffsetDateTime;
import java.time.ZonedDateTime;
  
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // Parses the date1
        OffsetDateTime date1
            = OffsetDateTime
                  .parse(
                      "2018-12-12T13:30:30+05:00");
  
        // Prints dates
        System.out.println("Date1: " + date1);
  
        // Subtracts the number of years
        System.out.println("Date1 after adding years: "
                           + date1.plusYears(-120));
    }
}

Output:

Date1: 2018-12-12T13:30:30+05:00
Date1 after adding years: 1898-12-12T13:30:30+05:00

Program 2 :




// Java program to demonstrate the plusYears() method
  
import java.time.OffsetDateTime;
import java.time.ZonedDateTime;
  
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // Parses the date1
        OffsetDateTime date1
            = OffsetDateTime
                  .parse(
                      "2018-12-12T13:30:30+05:00");
  
        // Prints dates
        System.out.println("Date1: " + date1);
  
        // Subtracts the number of years
        System.out.println("Date1 after adding years: "
                           + date1.plusYears(140));
    }
}

Output:

Date1: 2018-12-12T13:30:30+05:00
Date1 after adding years: 2158-12-12T13:30:30+05:00
