LocalDateTime Class ofInstant() method

  • ofInstant() method is available in java.time package.
  • ofInstant() method is used to create an instance of LocalDateTime from the given instant and zone.
  • ofInstant() method may throw an exception at the time of representing the object.
    DateTimeException – This exception may throw when this LocalDateTime value reaches out of the min or max instant.
  • ofInstant() method is a static method and it is accessible with the class name and if we try to access these methods with the class object then we will not get an error.


public static LocalDateTime ofInstant(Instant ins, ZoneId zo);


  • Instant ins – represents the instant by which we are creating LocalDateTime.
  • ZoneId zo – represents the time zone.

Return value:

The return type of this method is LocalDateTime, it returns the LocalDateTime that holds the value creates from the given Instant and zone.


// Java program to demonstrate the example 
// of ofInstant(Instant ins, ZoneId zo) method 
// of LocalDateTime

import java.time.*;

public class OfInstantOfLocalDateTime {
    public static void main(String args[]) {
        // Instantiates a ZoneId and
        // Instant
        ZoneId zo = ZoneId.of("Africa/Accra");
        Instant ins = Instant.parse("2006-04-03T05:10:15.00Z");

        // Here, this method creates an instance of 
        // LocalDateTime by using the given
        // Instant and ZoneId
        LocalDateTime da_ti = LocalDateTime.ofInstant(ins, zo);

        // Display da_ti
        System.out.print("LocalDateTime.ofInstant(ins,zo): ");


LocalDateTime.ofInstant(ins,zo): 2006-04-03T05:10:15
