Syntax:

public Period plus(TemporalAmount amountToAdd)

Parameters: This function accepts a single parameter amountToAdd, which is amount to add to period. It must not be null.



Returns Value This function returns a Period based on the given period with the requested period added, and this must not be null.

Exceptions:

  • DateTimeException: This exception is returned if the specified amount has a non-ISO chronology or contains an invalid unit.
  • ArithmeticException: This exception is caught if numeric overflow occurs.

Below programs illustrate the above method:

Program 1:




// Java code to show the function plus()
// to subtract the two given periods
  
import java.time.Period;
import java.time.temporal.ChronoUnit;
  
public class PeriodDemo {
  
    // Function to subtract two given periods
    static void addPeriod(Period p1, Period p2)
    {
  
        System.out.println(p1.plus(p2));
    }
  
    // Driver Code
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        // Defining first period
        int year = 4;
        int months = 11;
        int days = 10;
        Period p1 = Period.of(year, months, days);
  
        // Defining second period
        int year1 = 2;
        int months1 = 7;
        int days1 = 8;
        Period p2 = Period.of(year1, months1, days1);
  
        addPeriod(p1, p2);
    }
}
Output:
P6Y18M18D

Program 2: Period can be negative.




// Java code to show the function plus()
// to subtract the two given periods
  
import java.time.Period;
import java.time.temporal.ChronoUnit;
  
public class PeriodDemo {
  
    // Function to add two given periods
    static void addPeriod(Period p1, Period p2)
    {
  
        System.out.println(p1.plus(p2));
    }
  
    // Driver Code
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        // Defining second period
        int year1 = 2;
        int months1 = 7;
        int days1 = 8;
        Period p1 = Period.of(year1, months1, days1);
  
        // Defining first period
        int year = 4;
        int months = 11;
        int days = 10;
        Period p2 = Period.of(year, months, days);
  
        addPeriod(p1, p2);
    }
}
Output:
P6Y18M18D
