Im using LocalDate and DateTimeFormatter to parse dates from String values in Java8 . However, some dates are of MM/dd/yyyy, while others are like M/d/yyyy or M/dd/yyyy or MM/d/yyyy. How can i resolve this?

Hi,

you can simple use this pattern to parse the Strings:
This way the formatter will handle the dates correctly, no matter if the month or day are 2 digits or only 1 digit.
