One day, I was talking about why the
month was off by a month.
int month = Calendar.getInstance().get(Calendar.MONTH);
If you ran this code in February, the month would be "1". If you answer that it starts with "0", isn't it inconvenient why it starts with "0"? It became a story. I hadn't been aware of it until now, but when I was told, it was strange to start with "0"! I was worried about it, and when I asked someone who seemed to know it,
When counting the months in Japan, it is expressed as "January, February, March ..." English-speaking countries are expressed in letters as "January, February, March ..." instead of numbers. Isn't it started with "0" so that it can be easily managed by an array or a program?
I don't know if this is correct, but I see! I thought. When I looked it up online, I found similar questions and answers.
The system I'm mainly in charge of is still running on Java 5 and 6, so If you want to get the current "month", it is often described as follows.
int month = Calendar.getInstance().get(Calendar.MONTH) + 1; System.out.println(month + "Month");
If you have ** Java8 or later **, you can get the current "month" without writing "+1" by using the LocalDate class.
int month = LocalDate.now().getMonthValue(); System.out.println(month + "Month");
