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

Example 1:

import java.util.*;
import java.io.*;
import java.time.*;
import java.time.chrono.*;
import java.time.temporal.*;
  
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] argv)
    {
        try {
  
            // Creating and initializing
            // JapaneseDate Object
            // By using of() method
            JapaneseDate hidate
                = JapaneseDate.of(
                    JapaneseEra.HEISEI,
                    2008, 04, 24);
  
            // Display the result
            System.out.println("JapaneseDate: "
                               + hidate);
        }
        catch (DateTimeException e) {
            System.out.println("passed parameter can"
                               + " not form a date");
            System.out.println("Exception thrown: "
                               + e);
        }
    }
}

Example 2:

Java




// Java program to demonstrate of() method

import java.io.*;
import java.time.*;
import java.time.chrono.*;
import java.time.temporal.*;
  
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] argv)
    {
        try {
  
            // Creating and initializing
            // JapaneseDate Object
            // By using of() method
            JapaneseDate hidate
                = JapaneseDate.of(
                    JapaneseEra.TAISHO,
                    2008, 04, 24);
  
            // Display the result
            System.out.println("JapaneseDate: "
                               + hidate);
        }
        catch (DateTimeException e) {
            System.out.println("passed parameter can"
                               + " not form a date");
            System.out.println("Exception thrown: "
