import java.util.*;

public class Exercise32 {  
   public static void main(String[] args)
        // date of birth
        LocalDate pdate = LocalDate.of(1989, 04, 11);
        // current date
        LocalDate now = LocalDate.now();
        // difference between current date and date of birth
        Period diff = Period.between(pdate, now);
     System.out.printf("\nI am  %d years, %d months and %d days old.\n\n", 
                    diff.getYears(), diff.getMonths(), diff.getDays());

Sample Output:

import java.util.Calendar;

public class Main {

    public static void main(String[] args) {

        LocalDate start_Local_date = LocalDate.of(1985, 06, 4);
        LocalDate end_Local_date = LocalDate.now();

        long years = ChronoUnit.YEARS.between(start_Local_date, end_Local_date);
        System.out.println("Age in years: "+years + "y ");

        Period period_Between = Period.between(start_Local_date, end_Local_date);
        System.out.println("Age in years/months/dates: "+period_Between.getYears() + "y "
                + period_Between.getMonths() + "m "
                + period_Between.getDays() + "d");

Sample Output:

Age in years: 34y 
Age in years/months/dates: 34y 5m 12d
