import java.time.LocalDate; 
public class DateDemo {
	
	public static void main(String[] args){  
		
		LocalDate localDate = LocalDate.of(2018, 10, 10);
		System.out.println(localDate);

import java.time.LocalDate; 
public class DateDemo {
	
	public static void main(String[] args){  
		
		LocalDate localDate = LocalDate.now();
