# LocalDate getEra() method in Java

Java 8Object Oriented ProgrammingProgramming

The era for a particular LocalDate can be obtained using the getEra() method in the LocalDate class in Java. This method requires no parameters and it returns the era applicable for the LocalDate.

A program that demonstrates this is given as follows −

## Example

Live Demo

import java.time.*;
public class Main {
public static void main(String[] args) {
LocalDate ld = LocalDate.parse("2019-02-14");
System.out.println("The LocalDate is: " + ld);
System.out.println("The era is: " + ld.getEra());
}
}

## Output

The LocalDate is: 2019-02-14
The era is: CE

Now let us understand the above program.

First the LocalDate is displayed. Then the era name for the LocalDate is displayed using the getEra() method. A code snippet that demonstrates this is as follows −

LocalDate ld = LocalDate.parse("2019-02-14");
System.out.println("The LocalDate is: " + ld);
System.out.println("The era is: " + ld.getEra());
