Apache agrees with Tim - specify the configuration for source and target yourself and don't rely on defaults.

The documentation for version 3.13.0 wrote:Also note that at present the default source setting is 1.8 and the default target setting is 1.8, independently of the JDK you run Maven with. You are highly encouraged to change these defaults by setting source and target as described in Setting the -source and -target of the Java Compiler.

My thinking is don't trust ChatGPT (or any other AI resource) unless you know enough about the subject to be able to determine if the answer is correct or not - AI systems frequently hallucinate.

The responses from the chatbots are generally presented as authoritative and sound plausible/convincing, even when they are making things up.

I'm not sure if there is a Kindle Reader for ChromeOS, but if not, if you have Internet access, you could use the Kindle Cloud Reader, which runs in the browser.

The book is also available from the Enthuware online store as a PDF, which would allow for off-line reading.

What is the best way to handle this? A Try Catch?

If you are expecting that the remote value can be null, then check first, and then either transform it to a LocalDate or assign some default value.
