Below programs illustrate the working of isLenient() Method of Calendar class:
Example 1:

// isLenient() method
  
import java.text.*;
import java.util.*;
  
public class DateFormat_Demo {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        // Initializing the first formatter
        DateFormat DFormat
            = DateFormat.getDateTimeInstance();
        System.out.println("Object: "
                           + DFormat);
  
        // String formatting
        String str
            = DFormat.format(new Date());
  
        // Displaying the string time
        System.out.println(str);
  
        System.out.println("Leniency: "
                           + DFormat.isLenient());
    }
}
Output:
Object: java.text.SimpleDateFormat@7945516e

Leniency: true

Example 2:

public class DateFormat_Demo {
    public static void main(String[] argv)
    {
        // Initializing the first formatter
