Using Java 8 Month Enum with Examples


Java Month Enum Class Examples

In the previous article we looked at the DayOfWeek Enum from the Java 8 Date-Time API. Now let us take a look at the Month's enum.

The Month enum contains the singleton instances of the 12 months of the year as below,

  • JANUARY :int value = 1
  • FEBRUARY :int value = 2
  • MARCH :int value = 3
  • APRIL :int value = 4
  • MAY :int value = 5
  • JUNE :int value = 6
  • JULY :int value = 7
  • AUGUST :int value = 8
  • SEPTEMBER :int value = 9
  • OCTOBER :int value = 10
  • NOVEMBER :int value = 11
  • DECEMBER :int value = 12
Example 1: Get the month of year alphanumeric value
Month january = Month.JANUARY;
Month march = Month.MARCH;
Month december = Month.DECEMBER;

System.out.println(january);
System.out.println(march);
System.out.println(december);
Output:
JANUARY
MARCH
DECEMBER


Example 2: Get the month of year numeric value
int january = Month.JANUARY.getValue();
int march = Month.MARCH.getValue();
int december = Month.DECEMBER.getValue();

System.out.println(january);
System.out.println(march);
System.out.println(december);
Output:
1
3
12


Example 3: Get number of days in a month

To get the number of days in a month we can make use of length(), minLength() and maxLength()

        int january = Month.JANUARY.maxLength();
        int february = Month.FEBRUARY.maxLength();
        int february1 = Month.FEBRUARY.minLength();
        int february2 = Month.FEBRUARY.length(true);
        int february3 = Month.FEBRUARY.length(false);

        System.out.println(january);
        System.out.println(february);
        System.out.println(february1);
        System.out.println(february1);
        System.out.println(february2);
        System.out.println(february3);
Output:
31
29
28
28
29
28


Example 4: Get Month names with TypeStyle:
import java.time.Month;
import java.time.format.TextStyle;
import java.util.Locale;

public class Example {

    public static void main(String... args) {

        getMonthWithType(Month.JANUARY,Locale.US);
        getMonthWithType(Month.FEBRUARY,Locale.US);
        getMonthWithType(Month.MARCH,Locale.US);
        getMonthWithType(Month.APRIL,Locale.US);
        getMonthWithType(Month.MAY,Locale.US);
        getMonthWithType(Month.JUNE,Locale.US);
        getMonthWithType(Month.JULY,Locale.US);
        getMonthWithType(Month.AUGUST,Locale.US);
        getMonthWithType(Month.SEPTEMBER,Locale.US);
        getMonthWithType(Month.OCTOBER,Locale.US);
        getMonthWithType(Month.NOVEMBER,Locale.US);
        getMonthWithType(Month.DECEMBER,Locale.US);


    }

    private static void getMonthWithType(Month month, Locale locale) {

        String monthName = "Month" + month.name() +"\n";
        String fullName = "FULL: "+ month.getDisplayName(TextStyle.FULL,locale) +"\n";
        String fullStandAloneName = "FULL_STANDALONE: "+ month.getDisplayName(TextStyle.FULL_STANDALONE,locale) +"\n";
        String shortName = "SHORT: "+ month.getDisplayName(TextStyle.SHORT,locale) +"\n";
        String shortStandaloneName = "SHORT_STANDALONE: "+ month.getDisplayName(TextStyle.SHORT_STANDALONE,locale) +"\n";
        String narrowName = "NARROW: "+ month.getDisplayName(TextStyle.NARROW,locale) +"\n";
        String narrowStandAloneName = "NARROW_STANDALONE: "+ month.getDisplayName(TextStyle.NARROW_STANDALONE,locale) +"\n";

        System.out.println(monthName + fullName + fullStandAloneName + shortName + shortStandaloneName + narrowName + narrowStandAloneName);

    }
