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

parse(CharSequence text)

parse() method of a OffsetTime class used to get an instance of OffsetTime from a string such as ’15:25:10+01:00′ passed as parameter.The string must have a valid date-time and is parsed using DateTimeFormatter.ISO_LOCAL_TIME.

Syntax:

public static OffsetTime parse(CharSequence text)

Parameters: This method accepts only one parameter text which is the text to parse in OffsetTime. It should not be null.

Return value: This method returns OffsetTime 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 program to demonstrate
// OffsetTime.parse() method
  
import java.time.*;
  
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // create an OffsetTime object
        OffsetTime lt
            = OffsetTime.parse("15:25:10+01:00");
  
        // print result
        System.out.println("OffsetTime : "
                           + lt);
    }
}


Output:

OffsetTime : 15:25:10+01:00

parse(CharSequence text, DateTimeFormatter formatter)

parse() method of a OffsetTime class used to get an instance of OffsetTime from a string such as ’15:25:10+01:00′ passed as parameter using a specific formatter.The date-time is parsed using a specific formatter.

                              DateTimeFormatter formatter)

public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        DateTimeFormatter dateTimeFormatter = DateTimeFormatter.ISO_OFFSET_TIME;
  
        // create an OffsetTime object and
        OffsetTime lt
            = OffsetTime
                  .parse("11:35:34+01:00",
                         dateTimeFormatter);
  
        // print result
        System.out.println("OffsetTime : "
                           + lt);
    }
}


Output:

OffsetTime : 11:35:34+01:00
