class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // Get the number of Years
        int numberOfYears = 1;
  
        // Get the number of Months
        int numberOfMonths = 5;
  
        // Get the number of Days
        int numberOfDays = 21;
  
        // Parse the given amounts into Period
        // using of() method
        Period p
            = Period.of(numberOfYears,
                        numberOfMonths,
                        numberOfDays);
  
        System.out.println(p.getYears() + " Years\n"
                           + p.getMonths() + " Months\n"
                           + p.getDays() + " Days");
    }
}
Output:
1 Years
5 Months
21 Days

Example 2:




// Java code to demonstrate of() method
  
import java.time.Period;
  
class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // Get the number of Years
        int numberOfYears = -2;
  
        // Get the number of Months
        int numberOfMonths = 10;
  
        // Get the number of Days
        int numberOfDays = -11;
  
        // Parse the given amounts into Period
        // using of() method
        Period p
            = Period.of(numberOfYears,
                        numberOfMonths,
                        numberOfDays);
  
        System.out.println(p.getYears() + " Years\n"
                           + p.getMonths() + " Months\n"
                           + p.getDays() + " Days");
    }
