Program to demonstrate addition and subtraction of hours to current hour of the day using Calendar class in Java


package com.hubberspot.example;

import java.util.Calendar;


public class TimeManipulation {

 public static void main(String[] args) {

  // Create a Calendar object
  Calendar calendar = Calendar.getInstance();

  // Get current day from calendar
  int day = calendar.get(Calendar.DATE);
  // Get current month from calendar
  int month = calendar.get(Calendar.MONTH) + 1;  
  // Get current year from calendar
  int year = calendar.get(Calendar.YEAR);

  System.out.print("Today's Date : ");
  // printing todays date in dd/mm/yy
  System.out.println(day+"/"+month+"/"+year);

  // Get current hour from calendar
  int hour = calendar.get(Calendar.HOUR_OF_DAY);
  // Get current minute from calendar
  int minutes = calendar.get(Calendar.MINUTE);
  // Get current second from calendar
  int seconds = calendar.get(Calendar.SECOND);

  System.out.print("Current Time : ");
  // printing current time in hh:mm:ss
  System.out.println(hour+":"+minutes+":"+seconds);

  // adding 6 hours to current hour of the day
  calendar.add(Calendar.HOUR_OF_DAY, 6);

  hour = calendar.get(Calendar.HOUR_OF_DAY);
  minutes = calendar.get(Calendar.MINUTE);
  seconds = calendar.get(Calendar.SECOND);

  System.out.print("Time after 6 hours : ");
  // printing time after 6 hours
  System.out.println(hour+":"+minutes+":"+seconds);

  // Calendar class automatically adjust date if 
  // on adding hours makes a date change
  day = calendar.get(Calendar.DATE);
  month = calendar.get(Calendar.MONTH) + 1;  
  year = calendar.get(Calendar.YEAR);

  System.out.print("Date after 6 hours : ");
  // printing date after 6 hours in dd/mm/yy
  System.out.println(day+"/"+month+"/"+year);

  // as our current hour is set to 6 hours plus from
  // the current hour , in order to subtract 6 
  // hours from current hour minus it with 12 
  calendar.add(Calendar.HOUR_OF_DAY, -12);

  hour = calendar.get(Calendar.HOUR_OF_DAY);
  minutes = calendar.get(Calendar.MINUTE);
  seconds = calendar.get(Calendar.SECOND);

  System.out.print("Time before 6 hours : ");
  // printing time after subtraction in hh:mm:ss
  System.out.println(hour+":"+minutes+":"+seconds);

 }

}
