# LocalDate hashCode() method in Java

Java 8Object Oriented ProgrammingProgramming

The hash code value of the LocalDate can be obtained using the hashCode() method in the LocalDate class in Java. This method requires no parameters and it returns the hash code value of 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("2019-02-15");
System.out.println("The LocalDate is: " + ld);
System.out.println("The hash code is: " + ld.hashCode());
}
}

## Output

The LocalDate is: 2019-02-15
The hash code is: 4135055

Now let us understand the above program.

First the LocalDate is displayed. Then the hash code value of the LocalDate is obtained using the hashCode() method and displayed. A code snippet that demonstrates this is as follows −

LocalDate ld = LocalDate.parse("2019-02-15");
System.out.println("The LocalDate is: " + ld);
System.out.println("The hash code is: " + ld.hashCode());
