Java Support for the Hijri Calendar

The Hijri calendar system is somewhat different from the Gregorian calendar.

This example does not discuss the complete Hijri calendar. This is only to educate you regarding the existence of of the Hijri calendar. Googling will help you understand more about it.

Code sample:

import java.time.chrono.HijrahDate;public class UsingHijrahDate{   public static void main(String args[])   {      UsingHijrahDate usingHijrahDate = new UsingHijrahDate();      usingHijrahDate.proceed();   }      private void proceed()   {      HijrahDate hijrahDate =;      //Some methods that are commonly used      System.out.println(" " + hijrahDate);      System.out.println("hijrahDate.isLeapYear(): " + hijrahDate.isLeapYear());      System.out.println("hijrahDate.getEra(): " + hijrahDate.getEra());   }}/*

Expected output:

[[email protected]]# java Hijrah-umalqura AH 1440-11-27hijrahDate.isLeapYear(): falsehijrahDate.getEra(): AH*/
