Period normalized() method in Java with Examples

  • Last Updated : 27 Nov, 2018

The normalized() method of Period class in Java is used to return a new instance of Period after normalizing years and months.

Syntax:

public Period normalized()

Parameters: This function does not accepts any parameter.

Return Value: This function returns a new instance of Period after normalizing year and month of the period.

Exceptions: It throws an ArithmeticException. This exception is caught if numeric overflow occurs.



Below program illustrates the above method:

Program 1:




// Java code to show the function to normalize
// months and years of the period
import java.time.Period;
import java.time.temporal.ChronoUnit;
  
public class PeriodClass {
  
    // Function to normalize given periods
    static void toNormalize(Period p1)
    {
  
        System.out.println(p1.normalized());
    }
  
    // Driver Code
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        // Defining period
        int year = 4;
        int months = 15;
        int days = 10;
        Period p1 = Period.of(year, months, days);
  
        toNormalize(p1);
    }
}
Output:
P5Y3M10D

Program 2: This will not normalize the number of days.




// Java code to show the function to normalize
// months and years of the period
import java.time.Period;
import java.time.temporal.ChronoUnit;
  
public class PeriodClass {
  
    // Function to normalize given periods
    static void toNormalize(Period p1)
    {
  
        System.out.println(p1.normalized());
    }
  
    // Driver Code
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        // Defining period
        int year = 10;
        int months = 25;
        int days = 366;
        Period p1 = Period.of(year, months, days);
  
        toNormalize(p1);
    }
}
Output:
P12Y1M366D
