In LocalTime class, there are two types of parse() method depending upon the parameters passed to it.
 

parse(CharSequence text)

parse() method of a LocalTime class used to get an instance of LocalTime from a string such as ‘2018-10-23’ passed as parameter.The string must have a valid date-time and is parsed using DateTimeFormatter.ISO_LOCAL_DATE.
Syntax: 
 

public static LocalTime parse(CharSequence text)

Parameters: This method accepts only one parameter text which is the text to parse in LocalTime. It should not be null.
Return value: This method returns LocalTime which is the parsed local date-time.
Exception: This method throws DateTimeParseException if the text cannot be parsed.
Below programs illustrate the parse() method: 
Program 1: 
 

Java




// LocalDate.parse() method
 
import java.time.*;
 
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
 
        // create an LocalDate object
        LocalDate lt
            = LocalDate.parse("2018-12-27");
 
        // print result
        System.out.println("LocalDate : "
                           + lt);
    }
}

Output: 

LocalDate : 2018-12-27
