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



Example 1:

Java




// Java program to demonstrate
// toString() method
  
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
            JapaneseDate hidate = JapaneseDate.now();
  
            // Getting string represntation
            // of Japanese date
            // by using toString() method
            String date = hidate.toString();
  
            // Display the result
            System.out.println("Japanesedate : "
                               + date);
        }
        catch (DateTimeException e) {
            System.out.println("passed parameter can"
                               + " not form a date");
            System.out.println("Exception thrown: "
                               + e);
        }
    }
