public final class Days extends BaseSingleFieldPeriod
Days
is an immutable period that can only store days.
It does not store years, months or hours for example. As such it is a
typesafe way of representing a number of days in an application.
The number of days is set in the constructor, and may be queried using
getDays()
. Basic mathematical operations are provided 
plus()
, minus()
, multipliedBy()
and
dividedBy()
.
Days
is threadsafe and immutable.

standard length days in the specified period. 
Duration 
toStandardDuration()
Converts this period in days to a duration in milliseconds assuming a
24 hour day, 60 minute hour and 60 second minute.

Hours 
toStandardHours()
Converts this period in days to a period in hours assuming a
24 hour day.

Minutes 
toStandardMinutes()

24 hour day and 60 minute hour.

Seconds 
toStandardSeconds()
Converts this period in days to a period in seconds assuming a
24 hour day, 60 minute hour and 60 second minute.

Weeks 
toStandardWeeks()
Converts this period in days to a period in weeks assuming a
7 day week.

String 
toString()
Gets this instance as a String in the ISO8601 duration format.

This factory method converts all fields from the period to hours using standardised durations for each field. Only those fields which have a precise duration in the ISO UTC chronology can be converted.

public Weeks toStandardWeeks()
This method allows you to convert between different types of period. However to achieve this it makes the assumption that all weeks are 7 days long. This may not be true for some unusual chronologies. However, it is included as it is a useful operation for many applications and business rules.
public Hours toStandardHours()
This method allows you to convert between different types of period. However to achieve this it makes the assumption that all days are 24 hours long. This is not true when daylight savings is considered and may also not be true for some unusual chronologies. However, it is included as it is a useful operation for many applications and business rules.
ArithmeticException
 if the number of hours is too large to be representedpublic Minutes toStandardMinutes()
This method allows you to convert between different types of period. However to achieve this it makes the assumption that all days are 24 hours long and all hours are 60 minutes long. This is not true when daylight savings is considered and may also not be true for some unusual chronologies. However, it is included as it is a useful operation for many applications and business rules.

This method allows you to convert between different types of period. However to achieve this it makes the assumption that all days are 24 hours long, all hours are 60 minutes long and all minutes are 60 seconds long. This is not true when daylight savings is considered and may also not be true for some unusual chronologies. However, it is included as it is a useful operation for many applications and business rules.

This method allows you to convert from a period to a duration. However to achieve this it makes the assumption that all days are 24 hours long, all hours are 60 minutes and all minutes are 60 seconds. This is not true when daylight savings time is considered, and may also not be true for some unusual chronologies. However, it is included as it is a useful operation for many applications and business rules.
