Return value: This method returns a String represents the formatted date-time string.



Exception: This method throws a DateTimeException if an error occurs during printing.

Below programs illustrate the format() method:
Program 1:




// Java program to demonstrate
// ChronoZonedDateTime.format() method
  
import java.time.*;
import java.time.chrono.*;
import java.time.format.*;
  
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // create ChronoZonedDateTime objects
        ChronoZonedDateTime zoneddatetime
            = ZonedDateTime.parse(
                "2018-12-06T19:21:12.123+05:30[Asia/Calcutta]");
  
        // create a formatter
        DateTimeFormatter formatter
            = DateTimeFormatter.ISO_TIME;
  
        // apply format()
        String value
            = zoneddatetime.format(formatter);
  
        // print result
        System.out.println("Result: " + value);
    }
}
Output:
Result: 19:21:12.123+05:30

Program 2:




// Java program to demonstrate
// ChronoZonedDateTime.format() method
  
import java.time.*;
import java.time.chrono.*;
import java.time.format.*;
  
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // create ChronoZonedDateTime objects
        ChronoZonedDateTime zoneddatetime
            = ZonedDateTime.parse(
                "2018-10-25T23:12:31.123+02:00[Europe/Paris]");
  
        // create a formatter
        DateTimeFormatter formatter
            = DateTimeFormatter.BASIC_ISO_DATE;
  
        // apply format()
        String value
            = zoneddatetime.format(formatter);
  
        // print result
        System.out.println("Result: " + value);
    }
}
Output:
Result: 20181025+0200
