The length() method is a built-in method of the Month ENUM which is used to get the number of days in this month instance. The number of days in a month can be 28, 30 or 31. Number of days in February in a leap year is 29.

This method accepts a boolean flag variable which indicates whether this Year is a leap year or not.

Syntax:

public int length(boolean leapYear)

Parameters: This method accepts a single parameter leapYear, which indicates whether this year is a leapYear or not.

Return Value: This method returns the length of this month in number of days present in it.

Program 1:




import java.time.*;
import java.time.Month;
import java.time.temporal.ChronoField;
  
class monthEnum {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        // Create a month instance
        Month month = Month.MAY;
  
        // Print the length of this Month
        System.out.println(month.length(false));
    }
}
Output:
31

Program 2:




import java.time.*;
import java.time.Month;
import java.time.temporal.ChronoField;
  
class monthEnum {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        // Create a month instance
        Month month = Month.FEBRUARY;
