How to add one month to a given date for Assertion
I want to assert a date from a response in JSON.
Expected Value is ApplicationDate + One Month
Application date is like '2019-03-04'. So the Expected Date should be '2019-04-04'
I know there are so many ways to do this by adding one month to the current system date. But how to add one month to a given date? Thanks

Hey @mpw83 ,
I can help you with this. I have a question though... What does it mean to add a month?
For instance, what would be the expected result for you if the application date were to be "2019-03-31"? (April has only 30 days so April 31th would be valid).
@Lucian , Thanks for the reply, Actually adding a calendar month.
if the application date were to be "2019-03-31 then + one month date should be 2019-04-30
if application date = 28/02/2019 then + one month date should be 28/03/2019
if application date = 15/01/2019 then + one month date should be 15/02/2019 .. etc
Please see the example in the below link:
Something like this works for me:
import java.time.* import java.time.format.* def initialDateString = "2019-03-31" // this should be extracted dynamically but for the purpose of this example I guess it's ok // Create a LocalDate object DateTimeFormatter formatter = DateTimeFormatter.ofPattern("yyyy-MM-dd") LocalDate date = LocalDate.parse(initialDateString, formatter) date = date.plusMonths(1) // Update the date def modifiedDateString = date.format(formatter) // Create a String in case you need to process this date further
Let me know if I can help you further!
