How to find number of days and weeks for given month in Java?



Problem Description :


Write a program in Java that displays number of days and weeks for given month with proper validations.

Concept :


We know that number of days are constant for each month except February because for leap year there are 29 days and for other years 28 days. So in this problem if any user enter month name as February then he has to enter year also for finding number of days. The Solution is very simple and straight forward. We are using switch case for finding number of day and division/remainder mechanism for number of weeks.

}



Output :


Case 1 :


Output of Java program that finds number of days and weeks for given month - case1
Output - Other than Feb month 

Case 2 :


Output of Java program that finds number of days and weeks for given month - case2
Output - Feb month
