Below programs illustrate the parse(CharSequence text) method of MonthDay in Java:

// Java program to demonstrate
// MonthDay.parse(CharSequence text) method
  
import java.time.*;
import java.time.temporal.*;
  
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // apply parse(CharSequence text) method
        // of MonthDay class
        MonthDay monthday = MonthDay.parse(
            "--05-09");
  
        // print both month and day
        System.out.println("MonthDay: "
                           + monthday);
    }
}

public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // apply parse(CharSequence text) method
        // of MonthDay class
        MonthDay monthday = MonthDay.parse(
            "--05-09");
