How do I convert LocalDate to ZonedDateTime?

You can use the atStartOfDay() method from LocalDate class to convert a LocalDate into a LocalDateTime. Then, you need to convert LocalDateTime to a ZonedDateTime using the atZone() method.

Here is an example:

package org.kodejava.datetime;

import java.time.*;

public class LocalDateToZonedDateTimeExample {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        // Create a LocalDate
        LocalDate date = LocalDate.of(2023, Month.JULY, 9);
        System.out.println("LocalDate: " + date);

        // Convert LocalDate to LocalDateTime
        LocalDateTime dateTime = date.atStartOfDay();
        System.out.println("LocalDateTime: " + dateTime);

        // Convert LocalDateTime to ZonedDateTime
        ZonedDateTime zonedDateTime = dateTime.atZone(ZoneId.systemDefault());
        System.out.println("ZonedDateTime: " + zonedDateTime);


LocalDate: 2023-07-09
LocalDateTime: 2023-07-09T00:00
ZonedDateTime: 2023-07-09T00:00+08:00[Asia/Makassar]

In this example, we’re creating a LocalDate for July 9, 2023. Then we’re converting it to a LocalDateTime, and then to a ZonedDateTime. The atStartOfDay() method returns a LocalDateTime set to the start of the day (00:00) on the date of this LocalDate. The atZone() method then takes the ZoneId and returns a ZonedDateTime representing the start of the day in that timezone.

The ZoneId.systemDefault() returns the system default time zone. If you want to convert it to a specific time zone, you can specify the timezone as a string, like this: ZoneId.of("America/New_York").
