# LocalDate toString() method in Java

Java 8Object Oriented ProgrammingProgramming

The string value of the LocalDate object can be obtained using the method toString() in the LocalDate class in Java. This method requires no parameters and it returns the string value of the LocalDate object.

A program that demonstrates this is given as follows −

## Example

Live Demo

import java.time.*;
public class Demo {
public static void main(String[] args) {
LocalDate ld = LocalDate.parse("2019-02-15");
System.out.println("The LocalDate is: " + ld.toString());
}
}

## Output

The LocalDate is: 2019-02-15

Now let us understand the above program.

The string value of the LocalDate is obtained using the method toString() and then this value is printed. A code snippet that demonstrates this is as follows −

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