  ZoneId defaultTimeZone = ZoneId.systemDefault();
  // Get current date.
  LocalDate localDate = LocalDate.now();
  System.out.println("LocalDate : " + localDate);
  // Convert LocaleDate to Instant.
  Instant instant = localDate.atStartOfDay(defaultTimeZone).toInstant();
  // Convert Instant to Date.
