import java.time.*;
import java.time.chrono.*;
 
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] argv)
    {
        try {
            // creating and initializing LocalDate Object
            LocalDate lodate = LocalDate.now();
 
            // getting IsoChronology used in LocalDate
            IsoChronology crono = lodate.getChronology();
 
            // getting LocalDate for the
            // given date, month and year field
            // by using date() method
            LocalDate date = crono.date(1440, 05, 24);
 
            // display the result
            System.out.println("LocalDate is: " + date);
        }
        catch (DateTimeException e) {
            System.out.println("passed parameter can "
                               + "not form a date");
            System.out.println("Exception thrown: " + e);
        }

public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] argv)
    {
        try {
            // creating and initializing LocalDate Object
            LocalDate lodate = LocalDate.now();
 
            // getting IsoChronology used in LocalDate
            IsoChronology crono = lodate.getChronology();
 
            // getting LocalDate for the
            // given date, month and year field
            // by using date() method
            LocalDate date = crono.date(2020, 05, 34);
 
            // display the result
            System.out.println("LocalDate is: " + date);
        }
        catch (DateTimeException e) {
            System.out.println("passed parameter can "
                               + "not form a date");
            System.out.println("Exception thrown: " + e);
