    {
  
        // get Instant using parse method
        Instant instant
            = Instant.parse("2018-11-30T18:35:24.00Z");
  
        // print result
        System.out.println("Instant: "
                           + instant);

    {
  
        // get Instant using parse method
        Instant instant
            = Instant.parse("2019-10-01T08:25:24.00Z");
