# LocalDate query() Method in Java

Java 8Object Oriented ProgrammingProgramming

The LocalDate object can be queried as required using the query method in the LocalDate class in Java. This method requires a single parameter i.e. the query to be invoked and it returns the result of the query.

A program that demonstrates this is given as follows −

## Example

Live Demo

import java.time.*;
import java.time.temporal.*;
public class Demo {
public static void main(String[] args) {
LocalDate ld = LocalDate.parse("2019-02-14");
System.out.println("The LocalDate is: " + ld);
String precision = ld.query(TemporalQueries.precision()).toString();
System.out.println("The Precision for the LocalDate is: "+ precision);
}
}

## Output

The LocalDate is: 2019-02-14
The Precision for the LocalDate is: Days

Now let us understand the above program.

First the LocalDate object is displayed. Then the LocalDate object is queried using the query method and the query result is displayed. A code snippet that demonstrates this is as follows −

LocalDate ld = LocalDate.parse("2019-02-14");
System.out.println("The LocalDate is: " + ld);
String precision = ld.query(TemporalQueries.precision()).toString();
System.out.println("The Precision for the LocalDate is: "+ precision);
