Create date time with custom values in Java 8.

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 example shows how to create LocalDateTime object with custom object.

package com.java2novice.datetime;

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

public class CustomLocalDateTimeEx {

	public static void main(String[] args) {

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

		// create date time with given values
		LocalDateTime custDate1 = LocalDateTime.of(2015, 12, 2, 10, 30);
		System.out.println("custum date time: "+custDate1);

		// create another date time with given values
		LocalDateTime custDate2 = LocalDateTime.of(2015, Month.APRIL, 2, 10, 30);
		System.out.println("custum date time: "+custDate2);

current date time: 2015-12-15T15:59:00.712
custum date time: 2015-12-02T10:30
custum date time: 2015-04-02T10:30
