Parameters: This method accepts temporal as parameter which is the temporal object. It should not be null.

Return value: This method returns the year object.

Exception: This method throws following Exceptions:



  • DateTimeException – if unable to convert to a Year.

Below programs illustrate the from() method:
Program 1:




// Java program to demonstrate
// Year.from() method
  
import java.time.*;
  
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // create a temporal object
        LocalDate date = LocalDate.parse("2007-12-03");
  
        // print instance
        System.out.println("LocalDate :"
                           + date);
  
        // apply from method of Year class
        Year year = Year.from(date);
  
        // print instance
        System.out.println("Year get from"
                           + " method: "
                           + year);
    }
}
Output:
LocalDate :2007-12-03
Year get from method: 2007

Program 2:




// Java program to demonstrate
// Year.from() method
  
import java.time.*;
  
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        // create a temporal object
        LocalDate ins = LocalDate.parse("2018-11-27");
  
        // print instance
        System.out.println("LocalDate :"
                           + ins);
  
        // apply from method of Year class
        Year year = Year.from(ins);
  
        // print instance
        System.out.println("Year get from"
                           + " method: "
                           + year);
    }
}
Output:
LocalDate :2018-11-27
Year get from method: 2018
