  • Last Updated : 27 Nov, 2018

The get() method of Period class in Java is used to get the value of the requested unit(YEARS, MONTHS or DAYS) given in the argument from this Period.

Syntax:

public long get(TemporalUnit unit)

Parameters: This method accepts a single parameter unit of type TemporalUnit which is the unit to get required unit.

Return Value: This function returns the long value of the requested unit.

Exceptions:



  • DateTimeException – This method throws DateTimeException, if the unit in argument is not supported.
  • UnsupportedTemporalTypeException – This method throws UnsupportedTemporalTypeException if the unit given in argument is not supported.

Below programs illustrate the above method:

Program 1:




// Java code to show the function get()
// which gives the requested unit
import java.time.Period;
import java.time.temporal.ChronoUnit;
  
public class PeriodDemo {
  
    // Function to get requested unit
    static void getUnit(int year, int months, int days)
    {
        Period period = Period.of(year, months, days);
        System.out.println(period.get(ChronoUnit.DAYS));
    }
  
    // Driver Code
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        int year = 8;
        int months = 5;
        int days = 25;
  
        getUnit(year, months, days);
    }
}
Output:
25

Program 2:




// Java code to show the function get()
// which gives the requested unit
import java.time.Period;
import java.time.temporal.ChronoUnit;
  
public class PeriodDemo {
  
    // Function to get requested unit
    static void getUnit(int year, int months, int days)
    {
        Period period = Period.of(year, months, days);
        System.out.println(period.get(ChronoUnit.YEARS));
    }
  
    // Driver Code
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        int year = 11;
        int months = 3;
        int days = 21;
  
        getUnit(year, months, days);
    }
}
Output:
11
