import java.time.LocalDate;
import java.time.format.DateTimeFormatter;

public class StringToDateEx {

	public static void main(String[] args) {

		// if date is ISO_LOCAL_DATE format it is very straight conversion
		// means string date is in "yyyy-mm-dd" format
		String dateStr = "2015-11-18";
		LocalDate dtObj = LocalDate.parse(dateStr);
		System.out.println("Date object: "+dtObj);

		// convert it using formatter
		DateTimeFormatter dateFormatter = DateTimeFormatter.ofPattern("dd/MM/yyyy");
		LocalDate fdtObj = LocalDate.parse("18/11/2015", dateFormatter);
		System.out.println("Date object: "+fdtObj);

		// convert 18 Nov 2015
		DateTimeFormatter dateFormatter1 = DateTimeFormatter.ofPattern("dd MMM yyyy");
		LocalDate fdtObj1 = LocalDate.parse("18 Nov 2015", dateFormatter1);
		System.out.println("Date object: "+fdtObj1);
	}
}

Procedural Vs Object-oriented Programs
In procedural program, programming logic follows certain procedures and the instructions are executed one after another. In OOP program, unit of program is object, which is nothing but combination of data and code.

In procedural program, data is exposed to the whole program whereas in OOPs program, it is accessible with in the object and which in turn assures the security of the code.
Famous Quotations
Never argue with a fool, onlookers may not be able to tell the difference.
