# MonthDay query() method in Java

Java 8Object Oriented ProgrammingProgramming

The MonthDay object can be queried as required using the query method in the MonthDay 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) {
MonthDay md = MonthDay.parse("--02-22");
System.out.println("The MonthDay is: " + md);
String chronology = md.query(TemporalQueries.chronology()).toString();
System.out.println("The Chronology for the MonthDay is: "+ chronology);
}
}

## Output

The MonthDay is: --02-22
The Chronology for the MonthDay is: ISO

Now let us understand the above program.

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

MonthDay md = MonthDay.parse("--02-22");
System.out.println("The MonthDay is: " + md);
String chronology = md.query(TemporalQueries.chronology()).toString();
System.out.println("The Chronology for the MonthDay is: "+ chronology);
