Class MinguoDate

java.lang.Object
java.time.chrono.MinguoDate
All Implemented Interfaces:
Serializable, Comparable<ChronoLocalDate>, ChronoLocalDate, Temporal, TemporalAccessor, TemporalAdjuster

public final class MinguoDate extends Object implements ChronoLocalDate, Serializable
A date in the Minguo calendar system.

This date operates using the Minguo calendar. This calendar system is primarily used in the Republic of China, often known as Taiwan. Dates are aligned such that 0001-01-01 (Minguo) is 1912-01-01 (ISO).

This is a value-based class; programmers should treat instances that are equal as interchangeable and should not use instances for synchronization, or unpredictable behavior may occur. For example, in a future release, synchronization may fail. The equals method should be used for comparisons.

Implementation Requirements:
This class is immutable and thread-safe.
Since:

  • Method Details

    • now

      public static MinguoDate now()
      Obtains the current MinguoDate from the system clock in the default time-zone.

      This will query the system clock in the default time-zone to obtain the current date.

      Using this method will prevent the ability to use an alternate clock for testing because the clock is hard-coded.

      Returns:
      the current date using the system clock and default time-zone, not null
    • now

      public static MinguoDate now(ZoneId zone)
      Obtains the current MinguoDate from the system clock in the specified time-zone.

      This will query the system clock to obtain the current date. Specifying the time-zone avoids dependence on the default time-zone.

      Using this method will prevent the ability to use an alternate clock for testing because the clock is hard-coded.

      Parameters:
      zone - the zone ID to use, not null
      Returns:
      the current date using the system clock, not null
    • now

      public static MinguoDate now(Clock clock)
      Obtains the current MinguoDate from the specified clock.

      This will query the specified clock to obtain the current date - today. Using this method allows the use of an alternate clock for testing. The alternate clock may be introduced using dependency injection.

      Parameters:
      clock - the clock to use, not null
      Returns:
      the current date, not null
      Throws:
      DateTimeException - if the current date cannot be obtained
    • of

      public static MinguoDate of(int prolepticYear, int month, int dayOfMonth)
      Obtains a MinguoDate representing a date in the Minguo calendar system from the proleptic-year, month-of-year and day-of-month fields.

      This returns a MinguoDate with the specified fields. The day must be valid for the year and month, otherwise an exception will be thrown.

      Parameters:
      prolepticYear - the Minguo proleptic-year
      month - the Minguo month-of-year, from 1 to 12
      dayOfMonth - the Minguo day-of-month, from 1 to 31
      Returns:
      the date in Minguo calendar system, not null
      Throws:
      DateTimeException - if the value of any field is out of range, or if the day-of-month is invalid for the month-year
    • from

      public static MinguoDate from(TemporalAccessor temporal)
      Obtains a MinguoDate from a temporal object.

      This obtains a date in the Minguo calendar system based on the specified temporal. A TemporalAccessor represents an arbitrary set of date and time information, which this factory converts to an instance of MinguoDate.

      The conversion typically uses the EPOCH_DAY field, which is standardized across calendar systems.

      This method matches the signature of the functional interface TemporalQuery allowing it to be used as a query via method reference, MinguoDate::from.

      Parameters:
      temporal - the temporal object to convert, not null
      Returns:
      the date in Minguo calendar system, not null
      Throws:
      DateTimeException - if unable to convert to a MinguoDate

      Chronology.date(TemporalAccessor)
    • getChronology

      public MinguoChronology getChronology()
      Gets the chronology of this date, which is the Minguo calendar system.

      The Chronology represents the calendar system in use. The era and other fields in ChronoField are defined by the chronology.

      Specified by:
      getChronology in interface ChronoLocalDate
      Returns:
      the Minguo chronology, not null
    • getEra

      public MinguoEra getEra()
      Gets the era applicable at this date.

      The Minguo calendar system has two eras, 'ROC' and 'BEFORE_ROC', defined by MinguoEra.

      Specified by:
      getEra in interface ChronoLocalDate
      Returns:
      the era applicable at this date, not null
    • lengthOfMonth

      public int lengthOfMonth()
      Returns the length of the month represented by this date.

      This returns the length of the month in days. Month lengths match those of the ISO calendar system.

      Specified by:
      lengthOfMonth in interface ChronoLocalDate
      Returns:
      the length of the month in days
    • getLong

      public long getLong(TemporalField field)
      Description copied from interface: TemporalAccessor
      Gets the value of the specified field as a long.

      This queries the date-time for the value of the specified field. The returned value may be outside the valid range of values for the field. If the date-time cannot return the value, because the field is unsupported or for some other reason, an exception will be thrown.

      Specified by:
      getLong in interface TemporalAccessor
      Parameters:
      field - the field to get, not null
      Returns:
      the value for the field
    • with

      public MinguoDate with(TemporalField field, long newValue)
      Description copied from interface: ChronoLocalDate
      Returns an object of the same type as this object with the specified field altered.

      This returns a new object based on this one with the value for the specified field changed. For example, on a LocalDate, this could be used to set the year, month or day-of-month. The returned object will have the same observable type as this object.

      In some cases, changing a field is not fully defined. For example, if the target object is a date representing the 31st January, then changing the month to February would be unclear. In cases like this, the field is responsible for resolving the result. Typically it will choose the previous valid date, which would be the last valid day of February in this example.

      Specified by:
      with in interface ChronoLocalDate
      Specified by:
      with in interface Temporal
      Parameters:
      field - the field to set in the result, not null
      newValue - the new value of the field in the result
      Returns:
      an object of the same type with the specified field set, not null
    • with

      public MinguoDate with(TemporalAdjuster adjuster)
      Returns an adjusted object of the same type as this object with the adjustment made.

      This adjusts this date-time according to the rules of the specified adjuster. A simple adjuster might simply set the one of the fields, such as the year field. A more complex adjuster might set the date to the last day of the month. A selection of common adjustments is provided in TemporalAdjusters. These include finding the "last day of the month" and "next Wednesday". The adjuster is responsible for handling special cases, such as the varying lengths of month and leap years.

      Some example code indicating how and why this method is used:

        date = date.with(Month.JULY);        // most key classes implement TemporalAdjuster
        date = date.with(lastDayOfMonth());  // static import from Adjusters
        date = date.with(next(WEDNESDAY));   // static import from Adjusters and DayOfWeek
       
      Specified by:
      with in interface ChronoLocalDate
      Specified by:
      with in interface Temporal
      Parameters:
      adjuster - the adjuster to use, not null
      Returns:
      an object of the same type with the specified adjustment made, not null
      Throws:
      DateTimeException - if unable to make the adjustment
      ArithmeticException - if numeric overflow occurs
    • plus

      public MinguoDate plus(TemporalAmount amount)
      Returns an object of the same type as this object with an amount added.

      This adjusts this temporal, adding according to the rules of the specified amount. The amount is typically a Period but may be any other type implementing the TemporalAmount interface, such as Duration.

      Some example code indicating how and why this method is used:

        date = date.plus(period);                // add a Period instance
        date = date.plus(duration);              // add a Duration instance
        date = date.plus(workingDays(6));        // example user-written workingDays method
       

      Note that calling plus followed by minus is not guaranteed to return the same date-time.

      Specified by:
      plus in interface ChronoLocalDate
      Specified by:
      plus in interface Temporal
      Parameters:
      amount - the amount to add, not null
      Returns:
      an object of the same type with the specified adjustment made, not null
      Throws:
      DateTimeException - if the addition cannot be made
      ArithmeticException - if numeric overflow occurs
    • minus

      public MinguoDate minus(TemporalAmount amount)
      Returns an object of the same type as this object with an amount subtracted.

      This adjusts this temporal, subtracting according to the rules of the specified amount. The amount is typically a Period but may be any other type implementing the TemporalAmount interface, such as Duration.

      Some example code indicating how and why this method is used:

        date = date.minus(period);               // subtract a Period instance
        date = date.minus(duration);             // subtract a Duration instance
        date = date.minus(workingDays(6));       // example user-written workingDays method
       

      Note that calling plus followed by minus is not guaranteed to return the same date-time.

      Specified by:
      minus in interface ChronoLocalDate
      Specified by:
      minus in interface Temporal
      Parameters:
      amount - the amount to subtract, not null
      Returns:
      an object of the same type with the specified adjustment made, not null
      Throws:
      DateTimeException - if the subtraction cannot be made
      ArithmeticException - if numeric overflow occurs
    • plus

      public MinguoDate plus(long amountToAdd, TemporalUnit unit)
      Description copied from interface: ChronoLocalDate
      Returns an object of the same type as this object with the specified period added.

      This method returns a new object based on this one with the specified period added. For example, on a LocalDate, this could be used to add a number of years, months or days. The returned object will have the same observable type as this object.

      In some cases, changing a field is not fully defined. For example, if the target object is a date representing the 31st January, then adding one month would be unclear. In cases like this, the field is responsible for resolving the result. Typically it will choose the previous valid date, which would be the last valid day of February in this example.

      Specified by:
      plus in interface ChronoLocalDate
      Specified by:
      plus in interface Temporal
      Parameters:
      amountToAdd - the amount of the specified unit to add, may be negative
      unit - the unit of the amount to add, not null
      Returns:
      an object of the same type with the specified period added, not null
    • minus

      public MinguoDate minus(long amountToAdd, TemporalUnit unit)
      Description copied from interface: ChronoLocalDate
      Returns an object of the same type as this object with the specified period subtracted.

      This method returns a new object based on this one with the specified period subtracted. For example, on a LocalDate, this could be used to subtract a number of years, months or days. The returned object will have the same observable type as this object.

      In some cases, changing a field is not fully defined. For example, if the target object is a date representing the 31st March, then subtracting one month would be unclear. In cases like this, the field is responsible for resolving the result. Typically it will choose the previous valid date, which would be the last valid day of February in this example.

      Specified by:
      minus in interface ChronoLocalDate
      Specified by:
      minus in interface Temporal
      Parameters:
      amountToAdd - the amount of the specified unit to subtract, may be negative
      unit - the unit of the amount to subtract, not null
      Returns:
      an object of the same type with the specified period subtracted, not null
    • atTime

      public final ChronoLocalDateTime<MinguoDate> atTime(LocalTime localTime)
      Description copied from interface: ChronoLocalDate
      Combines this date with a time to create a ChronoLocalDateTime.

      This returns a ChronoLocalDateTime formed from this date at the specified time. All possible combinations of date and time are valid.

      Specified by:
      atTime in interface ChronoLocalDate
      Parameters:
      localTime - the local time to use, not null
      Returns:
      the local date-time formed from this date and the specified time, not null
    • until

      public ChronoPeriod until(ChronoLocalDate endDate)
      Description copied from interface: ChronoLocalDate
      Calculates the period between this date and another date as a ChronoPeriod.

      This calculates the period between two dates. All supplied chronologies calculate the period using years, months and days, however the ChronoPeriod API allows the period to be represented using other units.

      The start and end points are this and the specified date. The result will be negative if the end is before the start. The negative sign will be the same in each of year, month and day.

      The calculation is performed using the chronology of this date. If necessary, the input date will be converted to match.

      This instance is immutable and unaffected by this method call.

      Specified by:
      until in interface ChronoLocalDate
      Parameters:
      endDate - the end date, exclusive, which may be in any chronology, not null
      Returns:
      the period between this date and the end date, not null
    • equals

      public boolean equals(Object obj)
      Compares this date to another date, including the chronology.

      Compares this MinguoDate with another ensuring that the date is the same.

      Only objects of type MinguoDate are compared, other types return false. To compare the dates of two TemporalAccessor instances, including dates in two different chronologies, use ChronoField.EPOCH_DAY as a comparator.

      Specified by:
      equals in interface ChronoLocalDate
      Parameters:
      obj - the object to check, null returns false
      Returns:
      true if this is equal to the other date

      Object.hashCode(), HashMap
    • hashCode

      public int hashCode()
      A hash code for this date.
      Specified by:
      hashCode in interface ChronoLocalDate
      Returns:
      a suitable hash code based only on the Chronology and the date
      See Also:
      Object.equals(java.lang.Object), System.identityHashCode(java.lang.Object)
    • until

      public long until(Temporal endExclusive, TemporalUnit unit)
      Description copied from interface: ChronoLocalDate
      Calculates the amount of time until another date in terms of the specified unit.

      This calculates the amount of time between two ChronoLocalDate objects in terms of a single TemporalUnit. The start and end points are this and the specified date. The result will be negative if the end is before the start. The Temporal passed to this method is converted to a ChronoLocalDate using Chronology.date(TemporalAccessor). The calculation returns a whole number, representing the number of complete units between the two dates. For example, the amount in days between two dates can be calculated using startDate.until(endDate, DAYS).

      There are two equivalent ways of using this method. The first is to invoke this method. The second is to use TemporalUnit.between(Temporal, Temporal):

         // these two lines are equivalent
         amount = start.until(end, MONTHS);
         amount = MONTHS.between(start, end);
       
      The choice should be made based on which makes the code more readable.

      The calculation is implemented in this method for ChronoUnit. The units DAYS, WEEKS, MONTHS, YEARS, DECADES, CENTURIES, MILLENNIA and ERAS should be supported by all implementations. Other ChronoUnit values will throw an exception.

      If the unit is not a ChronoUnit, then the result of this method is obtained by invoking TemporalUnit.between(Temporal, Temporal) passing this as the first argument and the converted input temporal as the second argument.

      This instance is immutable and unaffected by this method call.

      Specified by:
      until in interface ChronoLocalDate
      Specified by:
      until in interface Temporal
      Parameters:
      endExclusive - the end date, exclusive, which is converted to a ChronoLocalDate in the same chronology, not null
      unit - the unit to measure the amount in, not null
      Returns:
      the amount of time between this date and the end date
