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

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.

The parse will accept the full ISO syntax of PnYnMnWnDTnHnMnS however only the weeks component may be nonzero. If any other component is nonzero, an exception will be thrown.

public Days toStandardDays()
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.
ArithmeticException
 if the number of days is too large to be representedpublic Hours toStandardHours()
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 and 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 weeks are 7 days long, 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 from a period to a duration. However to achieve this it makes the assumption that all weeks are 7 days long, 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 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.
