Below programs illustrate the compareTo() method of ChronoLocalDate in Java:



Program 1:




// Program to illustrate the compareTo() method
  
import java.util.*;
import java.time.*;
import java.time.chrono.*;
  
public class GfG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        // First date
        ChronoLocalDate dt
            = LocalDate.parse("2018-11-01");
  
        System.out.println(dt);
  
        // Second date
        ChronoLocalDate dt1
            = LocalDate.parse("2018-11-14");
  
        System.out.println(dt1);
  
        // Compare both dates
        System.out.println(dt1.compareTo(dt));
    }
}
Output:
2018-11-01
2018-11-14
13

Program 2:




// Program to illustrate the compareTo() method
  
import java.util.*;
import java.time.*;
import java.time.chrono.*;
  
public class GfG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        // First date
        ChronoLocalDate dt
            = LocalDate.parse("2018-11-21");
        System.out.println(dt);
  
        // Second date
        ChronoLocalDate dt1
            = LocalDate.parse("2018-11-14");
        System.out.println(dt1);
  
        // Compare both dates
        System.out.println(dt1.compareTo(dt));
    }
}
Output:
2018-11-21
