Time for an Example:

In this example, we are getting day of a month in a date by using the getDayOfMonth() method. This method returns an integer value that shows day of the month.

import java.time.LocalDate;
public class DateDemo {
	
	public static void main(String[] args){  
		
		LocalDate localDate = LocalDate.of(2018, 2, 20);
		System.out.println(localDate);
		int day = localDate.getDayOfMonth();

day of month : 20

Time for another Example:

If we have a date that does not show day of month directly then still we can get a day of the month by using the getDayOfMonth() method. See the below example.

import java.time.LocalDate;
public class DateDemo {
	
	public static void main(String[] args){  
		
		LocalDate localDate = LocalDate.ofYearDay(2012, 203);
		System.out.println(localDate);
		int day = localDate.getDayOfMonth();
		System.out.println("day of month : "+day);
	}
}
