Java date add year

In this tutorial, you will learn how to add years to date.

Here, we are going to add few years to current date and return the date of that day. For this, we have created a calendar instance and get a date to represent the current date. Then using the method add() of Calendar class, we have added 4 years to the calendar and using the Date class, we have got the date of that day.

Example

import java.util.*;

public class AddYearsToDate{

  public static void main(String[] args) {
    Calendar calendar = Calendar.getInstance();
    Date today = calendar.getTime();
    System.out.println("Today's Date: " + today);
    calendar.add(Calendar.YEAR, 4);
    Date addYears = calendar.getTime();
    System.out.println("Date after 4 years: " + addYears);
  }
}

Output

Today's Date: Tue Oct 09 17:02:24 IST 2012
Date after 4 years: Sun Oct 09 17:02:24 IST 2016
