Below programs illustrate the parse(CharSequence, DateTimeFormatter) method:
Program 1:




// Java program to demonstrate
// Year.parse(CharSequence, DateTimeFormatter) method
  
import java.time.*;
import java.time.format.*;
  
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        // create a formater
        DateTimeFormatter formatter = DateTimeFormatter.ofPattern("yy");
  
        // create a Year object
        // using parse(CharSequence, DateTimeFormatter)
        Year year = Year.parse("18", formatter);
  
        // print instance
        System.out.println("Year Parsed:"
                           + year);
    }
}


Output:

Year Parsed:2018

Program 2:




// Java program to demonstrate
// Year.parse(CharSequence, formatter) method
  
import java.time.*;
import java.time.format.*;
  
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        // create a formater
        DateTimeFormatter formatter = DateTimeFormatter.ofPattern("yyyy");
  
        // create a Year object
        // using parse(CharSequence, DateTimeFormatter)
        Year year = Year.parse("2087", formatter);
