1- LocalDate

The LocalDate class represents the local date in the ISO calendar system, it does not include time and time zone information. A LocalDate can be a date of birth, an official holiday, etc. it is related to a specific day of the year.
The LocalDate class is in the java.time package. Like other classes introduced in Java 8 Date Time API, LocalDate is immutable which means that all computations on LocalDate create a new LocalDate object. so it's safe to be used in multithreading environment.
public final class LocalDate
        implements Temporal, TemporalAdjuster, ChronoLocalDate, Serializable

2- Static Factory methods

The LocalDate class does not provide any constructor, but it provides static factory methods to create a new object.
static LocalDate now()
static LocalDate now​(Clock clock)
static LocalDate now​(ZoneId zone)
static LocalDate of​(int year, int month, int dayOfMonth)
static LocalDate of​(int year, Month month, int dayOfMonth)
static LocalDate ofEpochDay​(long epochDay)
static LocalDate ofInstant​(Instant instant, ZoneId zone)
static LocalDate ofYearDay​(int year, int dayOfYear)
static LocalDate parse​(CharSequence text)
static LocalDate parse​(CharSequence text, DateTimeFormatter formatter)
Creates a LocalDate object representing the current date from the system clock and default time zone (On your computer).
// Ex: Current date from the system clock in the default time-zone.
LocalDate localDate = LocalDate.now();
System.out.println("localDate.now(): " + localDate); // 2021-06-17
Creates a LocalDate object representing the current date from a specified clock:
Clock clock = Clock.systemDefaultZone();

LocalDate localDate = LocalDate.now(clock);
System.out.println("localDate.now(clock): " + localDate);

Creates a LocalDate object representing the current date from a specified ZoneId:
// Default system time-zone.
ZoneId zoneIdDefault = ZoneId.systemDefault();
        
// Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. UTC+7
ZoneId zoneId = ZoneId.of("Asia/Ho_Chi_Minh");

LocalDate localDate = LocalDate.now(zoneId);
System.out.println("localDate: " + localDate); // 2021-06-17
Creates a LocalDate object from the specified year, month, dayOfMonth:
// Ex: LocalDate based on year, month, dayOfMonth.
LocalDate localDate1 = LocalDate.of(2000, 5, 20); // 2000-05-20
System.out.println("localDate1: " + localDate1);

LocalDate localDate2 = LocalDate.of(2000, Month.MAY, 20); // 2000-05-20
System.out.println("localDate2: " + localDate2);
Creates a LocalDate object from the specified year, dayOfYear:
// Ex: LocalDate based on year and dayOfYear
LocalDate localDate1 = LocalDate.ofYearDay(1995, 1); // 1995-01-01 + 0 days.
System.out.println("localDate1: " + localDate1); // 1995-01-01

LocalDate localDate2 = LocalDate.ofYearDay(1995, 51); // 1995-01-01 + 50 days.
System.out.println("localDate2: " + localDate2); // 1995-02-20
Creates a LocalDate object from the specified epochDay:
// Ex: LocalDate based on epochDay.
LocalDate localDate1 = LocalDate.ofEpochDay(0); // 1971-01-01 + 0 days.
System.out.println("localDate1: " + localDate1); // 1970-01-01

LocalDate localDate2 = LocalDate.ofEpochDay(1000); // 1971-01-01 + 1000 days.
System.out.println("localDate2: " + localDate2); // 1972-09-27
Create a LocalDate object from Instant and ZoneId objects:
Instant instant = Instant.now();
ZoneId zoneId = ZoneId.systemDefault();

// LocalDate based on Instant and ZoneId.
LocalDate localDate = LocalDate.ofInstant(instant, zoneId);
System.out.println("localDate: " + localDate);
Create a LocalDate object from parsing a date formatted text:
// Ex: LocalDate based on CharSequence.
LocalDate localDate1 = LocalDate.parse("2011-11-20");
System.out.println("localDate1: " + localDate1); // 2011-11-20

// Ex: LocalDate based on CharSequence and DateTimeFormatter
DateTimeFormatter fmt2 = DateTimeFormatter.ofPattern("dd/MM/yyyy");

LocalDate localDate2 = LocalDate.parse("20/11/2020", fmt2);
System.out.println("localDate2: " + localDate2); // 2011-11-20

3- format(DateTimeFormatter)

Formats this LocalDate object with a specified DateTimeFormatter object.
// Inherited from ChronoLocalDate interface
public String format(DateTimeFormatter formatter)
Example:
LocalDate_format_ex1.java
LocalDate localDate = LocalDate.parse("2020-05-15"); // 2020-May-15
System.out.println("localDate: " + localDate); // 2020-05-15
System.out.println();

DateTimeFormatter fmt1 = DateTimeFormatter.BASIC_ISO_DATE; // yyyyMMdd  
System.out.println("BASIC_ISO_DATE: " + localDate.format(fmt1)); // 20200515

DateTimeFormatter fmt2 = DateTimeFormatter.ofPattern("dd/MM/yyyy");  
System.out.println("dd/MM/yyyy: " + localDate.format(fmt2)); // 15/05/2020

4- isBefore(..), isAfter(..)

The isBefore(ChronoLocalDate) method is used to check if this LocalDate object is before another specified object on the timeline.
// Inherited from ChronoLocalDate interface
public boolean isBefore(ChronoLocalDate other)
The isAfter(ChronoLocalDate) method is used to check if this LocalDate object is after another specified object on the timeline.
// Inherited from ChronoLocalDate interface
public boolean isAfter(ChronoLocalDate other)
localDate1 is before localDate2.
LocalDate localDate1 = LocalDate.parse("1990-05-15"); // 1990-May-15
LocalDate localDate2 = LocalDate.parse("2020-12-15"); // 2020-Dec-15


System.out.println("localDate1: " + localDate1); // 1990-05-15
System.out.println("localDate2: " + localDate2); // 2020-12-15
System.out.println();

System.out.println("localDate1.isBefore(localDate2): " + localDate1.isBefore(localDate2)); // true
System.out.println("localDate1.isAfter(localDate2): " + localDate1.isAfter(localDate2)); // false 
Output:
localDate1: 1990-05-15
localDate2: 2020-12-15

localDate1.isBefore(localDate2): true
localDate1.isAfter(localDate2): false

LocalDate localDate3 = LocalDate.parse("2020-02-01").withDayOfYear(35);  
System.out.println("localDate3: " + localDate3); // 2020-02-04

16- with(TemporalAdjuster)

Returns a copy of this LocalDate object, with the date data adjusted by the TemporalAdjuster object.
// Inherited from Temporal interface
public LocalDate with(TemporalAdjuster adjuster)  
Example:
LocalDate_with_adjuster_ex1.java
LocalDate now = LocalDate.now();
System.out.println("Now is: " + now);
System.out.println();

LocalDate firstDayOfMonth = now.with(TemporalAdjusters.firstDayOfMonth());
System.out.println("firstDayOfMonth: " + firstDayOfMonth);

LocalDate nextMonday = now.with(TemporalAdjusters.next(DayOfWeek.MONDAY));
System.out.println("nextMonday: " + nextMonday);

LocalDate firstDayOfNextYear = now.with(TemporalAdjusters.firstDayOfNextYear());
System.out.println("firstDayOfNextYear: " + firstDayOfNextYear);
Output:
Now is: 2021-06-01

firstDayOfMonth: 2021-06-01
nextMonday: 2021-06-07
firstDayOfNextYear: 2022-01-01
Example: Write a custom TemporalAdjuster to find the next Christmas date.
LocalDate_with_adjuster_ex2.java
package org.o7planning.localdate.ex;

import java.time.LocalDate;
import java.time.Period;
import java.time.temporal.ChronoField;
import java.time.temporal.Temporal;
import java.time.temporal.TemporalAdjuster;

public class LocalDate_with_adjuster_ex2 {

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        LocalDate localDate = LocalDate.parse("2020-12-28");
        System.out.println("Date : " + localDate);

        // with(TemporalAdjuster):
        LocalDate localDate2 = localDate.with(new NextChristmas());
        System.out.println("Next Christmas : " + localDate2);
    }
}

class NextChristmas implements TemporalAdjuster {

    @Override
    public Temporal adjustInto(Temporal temporal) {
        int month = temporal.get(ChronoField.MONTH_OF_YEAR);
        int day = temporal.get(ChronoField.DAY_OF_MONTH);
        if(month == 12 && day > 25)  {
            temporal = temporal.plus(Period.ofYears(1));
        }
        return temporal.with(ChronoField.MONTH_OF_YEAR, 12).with(ChronoField.DAY_OF_MONTH, 25);
    }
}
Output:
Date : 2020-12-28
Next Christmas : 2021-12-25

17- with(TemporalField, long)

Returns a copy of this LocalDate object with the specified field changed to the new value.
// Inherited from Temporal interface
public LocalDate with(TemporalField field, long newValue)
In some cases, changing the specified field can cause the resulting date to become invalid, such as changing the month from 31st January to February would make the day-of-month invalid. In cases like this, this problem has been handled by this method. Typically it will choose the previous valid date, which would be the last valid day of February in this example.
Example:
LocalDate_with_field_ex1.java
LocalDate myDate = LocalDate.parse("2021-05-29");

System.out.println("myDate is: " + myDate);
System.out.println("myDate day of week: " + myDate.get(ChronoField.DAY_OF_WEEK));  // 6
System.out.println("myDate day of month: " + myDate.get(ChronoField.DAY_OF_MONTH)); // 29
System.out.println();

LocalDate localDate1 =    myDate.with(ChronoField.DAY_OF_WEEK, 3);   
System.out.println("localDate1: " + localDate1); // 2021-05-26

LocalDate localDate2 =    myDate.with(ChronoField.DAY_OF_MONTH, 10);  
System.out.println("localDate2: " + localDate2);  // 2021-05-10

// February 2021 has only 28 days.
LocalDate localDate3 =    myDate.with(ChronoField.MONTH_OF_YEAR, 2);  
System.out.println("localDate3: " + localDate3);  // 2021-02-28  (***)
Output:
myDate is: 2021-05-29
myDate day of week: 6
myDate day of month: 29

localDate1: 2021-05-26
localDate2: 2021-05-10
localDate3: 2021-02-28

  • TemporalField

18- range(TemporalField)

Returns the range of valid values for the specified field.
//  Inherited from TemporalAccessor interface
public ValueRange range(TemporalField field)
Example:
LocalDate_range_ex1.java
LocalDate localDate   = LocalDate.parse("2021-06-18");  
System.out.println("LocalDate: "  + localDate);
 
// range(TemporalField field)
ValueRange range = localDate.range(ChronoField.DAY_OF_MONTH);
 
// Print range of DAY_OF_MONTH
System.out.println("Range of DAY_OF_MONTH: "  + range); // 1 - 30

System.out.println("First day of this month: " + range.getMinimum()); // 1
System.out.println("Last day of this month: " + range.getMaximum()); // 30

ValueRange range2 = localDate.range(ChronoField.DAY_OF_YEAR);
System.out.println("Range of DAY_OF_YEAR: "  + range2); // 1 - 365
  • ChronoField
  • TemporalField

19- query(TemporalQuery<R>)

Query this LocalDate object with the given TemporalQuery parameter to extract information.
// Inherited from TemporalAccessor interface
public <R> R query(TemporalQuery<R> query)
Example:
LocalDate_query_ex1.java
package org.o7planning.localdate.ex;

import java.time.LocalDate;
import java.time.temporal.TemporalQueries;

public class LocalDate_query_ex1 {

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        LocalDate localDate = LocalDate.parse("2021-05-15");

        // Apply query method of LocalDate class
        String value = localDate.query(TemporalQueries.precision()).toString();

        // Print the result
        System.out.println("Precision value for LocalDate is " + value);

        // Apply query method of LocalDate class
        System.out.println("Zone value for LocalDate is " + localDate.query(TemporalQueries.offset()));
    }
}
Output:
Precision value for LocalDate is Days
Zone value for LocalDate is null

20- isLeapYear()

Checks if the year represented in this LocalDate object is a leap year.
// Inherited from ChronoLocalDate interface
public boolean isLeapYear()  
Basically, in the ISO calendar system, a year is considered a leap year if it is divisible by 4, however a year divisible by 100 is not a leap year except when it is divisible by 400.
So:
  • The year 1904 is a leap year because it was divisible by 4 and not divisible by 100.
  • The year 1900 is not a leap year because it is divisible by 100 but not by 400.
  • The year 2000 is a leap year because it is divisible by 400.

21- isSupported(TemporalField)

Checks if a given TemporalField is supported.
// Inherited from TemporalAccessor interface
public boolean isSupported(TemporalField field)
Basically, LocalDate supports the following TemporalField(s):
  • ChronoField.DAY_OF_WEEK
  • ChronoField.ALIGNED_DAY_OF_WEEK_IN_MONTH
  • ChronoField.ALIGNED_DAY_OF_WEEK_IN_YEAR
  • ChronoField.DAY_OF_MONTH
  • ChronoField.DAY_OF_YEAR
  • ChronoField.EPOCH_DAY
  • ChronoField.ALIGNED_WEEK_OF_MONTH
  • ChronoField.ALIGNED_WEEK_OF_YEAR
  • ChronoField.MONTH_OF_YEAR
  • ChronoField.PROLEPTIC_MONTH
  • ChronoField.YEAR_OF_ERA
  • ChronoField.YEAR
  • ChronoField.ERA
Example:
LocalDate_isSupported_ex1.java
LocalDate localDate = LocalDate.parse("2020-05-15"); // 2020-May-15

// boolean isSupported(TemporalField field)
// LocalDate does not support ChronoField.MINUTE_OF_DAY, HOUR_OF_DAY,.. (** Used for LocalDateTime, LocalTime)
System.out.println("MINUTE_OF_DAY is supported? " + localDate.isSupported(ChronoField.MINUTE_OF_DAY)); // false
System.out.println("HOUR_OF_DAY is supported? " + localDate.isSupported(ChronoField.HOUR_OF_DAY)); // false

// LocalDate support ChronoField.MONTH_OF_YEAR, DAY_OF_WEEK,..
System.out.println("MONTH_OF_YEAR is supported? " + localDate.isSupported(ChronoField.MONTH_OF_YEAR)); // true
System.out.println("DAY_OF_WEEK is supported? " + localDate.isSupported(ChronoField.DAY_OF_WEEK)); // true
  • ChronoField
  • TemporalField

22- isSupported(TemporalUnit)

Checks if a specified TemporalUnit is supported.
// Inherited from Temporal interface
public boolean isSupported(TemporalUnit unit)
Basically, LocalDate supports the following TemporalUnit(s):
  • ChronoUnit.DAYS
  • ChronoUnit.WEEKS
  • ChronoUnit.MONTHS
  • ChronoUnit.YEARS
  • ChronoUnit.DECADES
  • ChronoUnit.CENTURIES
  • ChronoUnit.MILLENNIA
  • ChronoUnit.ERAS
Example:
LocalDate_isSupported_ex2.java
LocalDate localDate = LocalDate.parse("2020-05-15"); // 2020-May-15

// boolean isSupported(TemporalUnit unit)
// LocalDate does not support ChronoUnit.HOURS, MINUTES,.. (** Used for LocalDateTime, LocalTime)
System.out.println("HOURS is supported? " + localDate.isSupported(ChronoUnit.HOURS)); // false
System.out.println("MINUTES is supported? " + localDate.isSupported(ChronoUnit.MINUTES)); // false

// LocalDate support ChronoUnit.CENTURIES, WEEKS,..
System.out.println("CENTURIES is supported? " + localDate.isSupported(ChronoUnit.CENTURIES)); // true
System.out.println("WEEKS is supported? " + localDate.isSupported(ChronoUnit.WEEKS)); // true
