The withYears() method of Period Class is used to obtain a period with specified number of years. This number of years is passed as the parameter as integer value.

Syntax:

public Period withYears(int numberOfYears)

Parameters: This method accepts a parameter numberOfYears which is the number of years to be changed in this Period.

Returns: This function returns a Period with the number of years passed as the parameter.

Below is the implementation of Period.withYears() method:



Example 1:




// Java code to demonstrate withYears() method
  
import java.time.Period;
  
class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // Get the String to be withYearsd
        String period = "P1Y2M21D";
  
        // Parse the String into Period
        Period p = Period.parse(period);
  
        System.out.println("Period: " + p);
  
        // Get the number of years
        int numberOfYears = 5;
  
        // Change the numberOfYears of this Period
        // using withYears() method
        System.out.println("New Period: "
                           + p.withYears(numberOfYears));
    }
}
Output:
Period: P1Y2M21D
New Period: P5Y2M21D

Example 2:




// Java code to demonstrate withYears() method
  
import java.time.Period;
  
class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // Get the String to be withYearsd
        String period = "-P1Y2M21D";
  
        // Parse the String into Period
        Period p = Period.parse(period);
  
        System.out.println("Period: " + p);
  
        // Get the number of years
        int numberOfYears = -5;
  
        // Change the numberOfYears of this Period
        // using withYears() method
        System.out.println("New Period: "
                           + p.withYears(numberOfYears));
    }
}
Output:
Period: P-1Y-2M-21D
New Period: P-5Y-2M-21D
