The format() method of OffsetDateTime class in Java formats this date-time using the specified formatter.

Return Value: It returns the formatted date string, not null.
Exceptions: The function throws a DateTimeException that is when an error occurs during printing. 
Below programs illustrate the format() method:
Program 1 :  

Java




// Java program to demonstrate the format() method
import java.time.OffsetDateTime;
import java.time.format.DateTimeFormatter;
 
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
 
        // Parses the date1
        OffsetDateTime date1 = OffsetDateTime.parse("2018-12-12T13:30:30+05:00");
 
        // Prints the date
        System.out.println("Date1: " + date1);
 
        DateTimeFormatter formatter = DateTimeFormatter.ISO_TIME;
        System.out.println(formatter.format(date1));
    }
}
Output: 
Date1: 2018-12-12T13:30:30+05:00
13:30:30+05:00

 

Program 2

Java




// Java program to demonstrate the format() method
// Exceptions
 
import java.time.OffsetDateTime;
import java.time.format.DateTimeFormatter;
 
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        try {
            // Parses the date1
            OffsetDateTime date1 = OffsetDateTime.parse("2018-13-12T13:30:30+05:00");
 
            // Prints the date
            System.out.println("Date1: " + date1);
 
            DateTimeFormatter formatter = DateTimeFormatter.ISO_TIME;
            System.out.println(formatter.format(date1));
        }
        catch (Exception e) {
            System.out.println(e);
        }
    }
}
Output: 
java.time.format.DateTimeParseException: Text '2018-13-12T13:30:30+05:00' could not be parsed: Invalid value for MonthOfYear (valid values 1 - 12): 13
