Below are the examples to illustrate the dateNow() method:



Example 1:




// Java program to demonstrate
// dateNow() method
  
import java.util.*;
import java.io.*;
import java.time.*;
import java.time.chrono.*;
  
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] argv)
    {
        try {
            // creating and initializing  HijrahDate Object
            HijrahDate hidate = HijrahDate.now();
  
            // getting HijrahChronology used in HijrahDate
            HijrahChronology crono = hidate.getChronology();
  
            // creating and initializing clock object
            Clock clock = Clock.systemUTC();
  
            // getting HijrahDate for the
            // given clock object
            // by using dateNow() method
            HijrahDate date = crono.dateNow(clock);
  
            // display the result
            System.out.println("HijrahDate is: " + date);
        }
        catch (DateTimeException e) {
            System.out.println("passed parameter can "
                               + "not form a date");
            System.out.println("Exception thrown: " + e);
        }
    }
}
Output:
HijrahDate is: Hijrah-umalqura AH 1441-05-27

Example 2:




// Java program to demonstrate
// dateNow() method
  
import java.util.*;
import java.io.*;
import java.time.*;
import java.time.chrono.*;
  
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] argv)
    {
        try {
            // creating and initializing  HijrahDate Object
            HijrahDate hidate = HijrahDate.now();
  
            // getting HijrahChronology used in HijrahDate
            HijrahChronology crono = hidate.getChronology();
  
            // creating and initializing clock object
            Clock clock = Clock.systemUTC();
  
            // setting clock
            clock = Clock.tick(clock,
                               Duration.ofDays(100));
  
            // getting HijrahDate for the
            // given clock object
            // by using dateNow() method
            HijrahDate date = crono.dateNow(clock);
  
            // display the result
            System.out.println("HijrahDate is: " + date);
        }
        catch (DateTimeException e) {
            System.out.println("passed parameter can "
                               + "not form a date");
            System.out.println("Exception thrown: " + e);
        }
    }
}
Output:
HijrahDate is: Hijrah-umalqura AH 1441-03-03
