# MonthDay atYear() method in Java

Java 8Object Oriented ProgrammingProgramming

The MonthDay can be combined with a year to create a LocalDate using the atYear() method in the MonthDay class in Java. This method requires a single parameter i.e.the year and it returns the LocalDate created by combining MonthDay with the year.

A program that demonstrates this is given as follows:

## Example

Live Demo

import java.time.*;
public class Demo {
public static void main(String[] args) {
MonthDay md = MonthDay.parse("--02-22");
System.out.println("The MonthDay is: " + md);
LocalDate ld = md.atYear(2019);
System.out.println("The LocalDate is: " + ld);
}
}

## Output

The MonthDay is: --02-22
The LocalDate is: 2019-02-22

Now let us understand the above program.

First the MonthDay is displayed. Then the MonthDay is combined with a year to create a LocalDate using the atYear() method. A code snippet that demonstrates this is as follows:

MonthDay md = MonthDay.parse("--02-22");
System.out.println("The MonthDay is: " + md);
LocalDate ld = md.atYear(2019);
System.out.println("The LocalDate is: " + ld);
