Java 8 LocalDateTime example.

LocalDateTime is a date-time without a time-zone in the ISO-8601 calendar system, such as 2016-12-03T10:15:30.

LocalDateTime is an immutable date-time object that represents a date-time, often viewed as year-month-day-hour-minute-second. Other date and time fields, such as day-of-year, day-of-week and week-of-year, can also be accessed. Time is represented to nanosecond precision.

This class does not store or represent a time-zone. Instead, it is a description of the date, as used for birthdays, combined with the local time as seen on a wall clock. It cannot represent an instant on the time-line without additional information such as an offset or time-zone.

LocalDateTime class is immutable and thread-safe.

package com.java2novice.datetime;

import java.time.LocalDate;
import java.time.LocalDateTime;
import java.time.Month;

public class DateTimeIntroEx {

        public static void main(String[] args) {

                // get current date and time
                LocalDateTime currTime =;
                System.out.println("current date time: "+currTime);

                // get date alone
                LocalDate d1 = currTime.toLocalDate();
                System.out.println("current date: " + d1);

                // extract date properties
                Month mnt = currTime.getMonth();
                System.out.println("Month: "+mnt.getValue());
                int dayOfMonth = currTime.getDayOfMonth();
                System.out.println("Day of the month: "+dayOfMonth);
                int year = currTime.getYear();
                System.out.println("Year: "+year);

                // extract time properties
                int hour = currTime.getHour();
                System.out.println("current hour: "+hour);
                int minutes = currTime.getMinute();
                System.out.println("current minutes: "+minutes);
                int seconds = currTime.getSecond();
                System.out.println("current seconds: "+seconds);

current date time: 2016-12-15T11:50:36.955
current date: 2016-12-15
Month: 12
Day of the month: 15
Year: 2016
current hour: 11
current minutes: 50
current seconds: 36
