  • Last Updated : 27 Jan, 2022

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 ’10:15:45′ passed as parameter.The string must have a valid date-time and is parsed using DateTimeFormatter.ISO_LOCAL_TIME.
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




// Java program to demonstrate
// LocalTime.parse() method
 
import java.time.*;
 
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
 
        // create an LocalTime object
        LocalTime lt
            = LocalTime.parse("10:15:45");
 
        // print result
        System.out.println("LocalTime : "
                           + lt);
    }
}
Output: 
LocalTime : 10:15:45

 

parse(CharSequence text, DateTimeFormatter formatter)

parse() method of a LocalTime class used to get an instance of LocalTime from a string such as ’10:15:45′ passed as parameter using a specific formatter.The date-time is parsed using a specific formatter.
Syntax: 
 

public static LocalTime parse(CharSequence text,
                              DateTimeFormatter formatter)

Parameters: This method accepts two parameters text which is the text to parse and formatter which is the formatter to use.
Return value: This method returns LocalTime which is the parsed local date-time.
Exception: This method throws DateTimeParseException if the text cannot be parsed.

Program 1: 
 

Java




// Java program to demonstrate
// LocalTime.parse() method
 
import java.time.*;
import java.time.format.*;
 
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
 
        // create a formatter
        DateTimeFormatter formatter
            = DateTimeFormatter.ISO_LOCAL_TIME;
 
        // create an LocalTime object and
        LocalTime lt
            = LocalTime
                  .parse("10:15:45",
                         formatter);
