How to get current date and time Java 8?

In this page we have given examples on how to get current date and time using Java 8 new date and time API.

We are using LocalDate, LocalTime, LocalDateTime and ZonedDateTime classes to get the current time.

package com.java2novice.datetime;

import java.time.LocalDate;
import java.time.LocalDateTime;
import java.time.LocalTime;
import java.time.ZonedDateTime;

public class CurrentDateTimeEx {

	public static void main(String a[]) {

		// get current date without time
		LocalDate ldObj =;
		System.out.println("Current date without time: "+ldObj);

		// get current time without date
		LocalTime ltObj =;
		System.out.println("Current time without date: "+ltObj);

		// get current date and time together without timezone information
		LocalDateTime ldtObj =;
		System.out.println("Current date & time without zone: "+ldtObj);

		// get current date and time together along with timezone information
		ZonedDateTime zdtObj =;
		System.out.println("Current date & time with zone: "+zdtObj);

Current date without time: 2015-12-16
Current time without date: 08:30:05.519
Current date & time without zone: 2015-12-16T08:30:05.519
Current date & time with zone: 2015-12-16T08:30:05.519+05:30[Asia/Kolkata]

What is transient variable?
Transient variables cannot be serialized. During serialization process, transient variable states will not be serialized. State of the value will be always defaulted after deserialization.
