LocalTime format() method in Java

Java 8Object Oriented ProgrammingProgramming

The LocalTime can be formatted with the specified formatter using the format() method in the LocalTime class in Java. This method requires a single parameter i.e. the LocalTime object to be formatted and it returns the formatted LocalTime with the specified formatter.

A program that demonstrates this is given as follows:

Example

 Live Demo

import java.util.*;
import java.time.*;
import java.time.format.DateTimeFormatter;
public class Main {
   public static void main(String[] args) {
      LocalTime lt = LocalTime.parse("14:30:47");
      System.out.println("The LocalTime is: " + lt);
      DateTimeFormatter dtf = DateTimeFormatter.ISO_TIME;
      System.out.println("The formatted LocalTime is: " + dtf.format(lt));
   }
}

output

The LocalTime is: 14:30:47
The formatted LocalTime is: 14:30:47

Now let us understand the above program.

First the LocalTime is displayed. Then the LocalTime is formatted with the specified formatter using the format() method and the formatted LocalTime is displayed. A code snippet that demonstrates this is as follows:

LocalTime lt = LocalTime.parse("14:30:47");
System.out.println("The LocalTime is: " + lt);
DateTimeFormatter dtf = DateTimeFormatter.ISO_TIME;
System.out.println("The formatted LocalTime is: " + dtf.format(lt));
