Converting a String into a Date

The parse() method from SimpleDateFormat class helps to convert a String pattern into a Date object.

DateFormat dateFormat = DateFormat.getDateInstance(DateFormat.SHORT, Locale.US);
String dateStr = "08/30/2018"; // input String
Date date = dateFormat.parse(dateStr);
System.out.println(date.getYear());

There are 4 different styles for the text format, SHORT, MEDIUM (this is the default), LONG and FULL, all of which depend on the locale. If no locale is specified, the system default locale is used.
