 All Implemented Interfaces:
Serializable
,Comparable<Years>
,TemporalAmount
public final class Years extends Object implements TemporalAmount, Comparable<Years>, Serializable
A yearbased amount of time, such as '12 years'.This class models a quantity or amount of time in terms of years. It is a typesafe way of representing a number of years in an application.
The model is of a directed amount, meaning that the amount may be negative.
Implementation Requirements:
This class is immutable and threadsafe.This class must be treated as a value type. Do not synchronize, rely on the identity hash code or use the distinction between equals() and ==.

Method Detail

of
public static Years of(int years)
Obtains aYears
representing a number of years.The resulting amount will have the specified years.
 Parameters:
years
 the number of years, positive or negative Returns:
 the number of years, not null

from
public static Years from(TemporalAmount amount)
Obtains an instance ofYears
from a temporal amount.This obtains an instance based on the specified amount. A
TemporalAmount
represents an amount of time, which may be datebased or timebased, which this factory extracts to aYears
.The result is calculated by looping around each unit in the specified amount. Each amount is converted to years using
Temporals.convertAmount(long, java.time.temporal.TemporalUnit, java.time.temporal.TemporalUnit)
. If the conversion yields a remainder, an exception is thrown. If the amount is zero, the unit is ignored. For example, "12 months" can be converted to years but "11 months" cannot. Parameters:
amount
 the temporal amount to convert, not null Returns:
 the equivalent amount, not null
 Throws:
DateTimeException
 if unable to convert to aYears
ArithmeticException
 if numeric overflow occurs

parse
public static Years parse(CharSequence text)
Obtains aYears
from a text string such asPnY
.This will parse the string produced by
toString()
which is based on the ISO8601 period formatsPnY
.The string starts with an optional sign, denoted by the ASCII negative or positive symbol. If negative, the whole amount is negated. The ASCII letter "P" is next in upper or lower case. The ASCII integer amount is next, which may be negative. The ASCII letter "Y" is next in upper or lower case.
The leading plus/minus sign, and negative values for years are not part of the ISO8601 standard.
For example, the following are valid inputs:
"P2Y"  Years.of(2) "P2Y"  Years.of(2) "P2Y"  Years.of(2) "P2Y"  Years.of(2)
 Parameters:
text
 the text to parse, not null Returns:
 the parsed period, not null
 Throws:
DateTimeParseException
 if the text cannot be parsed to a period

between
public static Years between(Temporal startDateInclusive, Temporal endDateExclusive)
Obtains aYears
consisting of the number of years between two dates.The start date is included, but the end date is not. The result of this method can be negative if the end is before the start.
 Parameters:
startDateInclusive
 the start date, inclusive, not nullendDateExclusive
 the end date, exclusive, not null Returns:
 the number of years between this date and the end date, not null

get

 if the unit is not supported

getUnits
public List<TemporalUnit> getUnits()
Gets the set of units supported by this amount.The single supported unit is
YEARS
.This set can be used in conjunction with
get(TemporalUnit)
to access the entire state of the amount. Specified by:
getUnits
in interfaceTemporalAmount
 Returns:
 a list containing the years unit, not null

getAmount
public int getAmount()
Gets the number of years in this amount. Returns:
 the number of years

isNegative
public boolean isNegative()
Checks if the amount is negative. Returns:
 true if the amount is negative, false if the amount is zero or positive

isZero
public boolean isZero()
Checks if the amount is zero. Returns:
 true if the amount is zero, false if not

isPositive
public boolean isPositive()
Checks if the amount is positive. Returns:
 true if the amount is positive, false if the amount is zero or negative

plus
public Years plus(TemporalAmount amountToAdd)

from(TemporalAmount)
.This instance is immutable and unaffected by this method call.
 Parameters:

scalar
 the scalar to multiply by, not null Returns:
 the amount multiplied by the specified scalar, not null
 Throws:
ArithmeticException
 if numeric overflow occurs

dividedBy
public Years dividedBy(int divisor)

addTo
public Temporal addTo(Temporal temporal)
Adds this amount to the specified temporal object.This returns a temporal object of the same observable type as the input with this amount added.

Only nonzero amounts will be added.

addTo
in interfaceTemporalAmount

temporal
 the temporal object to adjust, not null Returns:
 an object of the same type with the adjustment made, not null

subtractFrom
public Temporal subtractFrom(Temporal temporal)
Subtracts this amount from the specified temporal object.This returns a temporal object of the same observable type as the input with this amount subtracted.
In most cases, it is clearer to reverse the calling pattern by using
Temporal.minus(TemporalAmount)
.// these two lines are equivalent, but the second approach is recommended dateTime = thisAmount.subtractFrom(dateTime); dateTime = dateTime.minus(thisAmount);
Only nonzero amounts will be subtracted.
This instance is immutable and unaffected by this method call.
 Specified by:
subtractFrom
in interfaceTemporalAmount
 Parameters:
temporal
 the temporal object to adjust, not null Returns:
 an object of the same type with the adjustment made, not null

 the comparator value, negative if less, positive if greater

equals
public boolean equals(Object otherAmount)
