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
        ChronoLocalDateTime dt
            = LocalDateTime.parse("2018-12-06T19:21:12");
  
        System.out.println(dt);
  
        // Second date
        ChronoLocalDateTime dt1
            = LocalDateTime.parse("2018-12-06T19:21:12");
  
        System.out.println(dt1);
  
        try {
            // Compare both dates
            System.out.println(dt1.compareTo(dt));
        }
        catch (Exception e) {
            System.out.println(e);
        }
    }
}
Output:

public class GfG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        // First date
        ChronoLocalDateTime dt
            = LocalDateTime.parse("2018-12-05T19:21:12");
        System.out.println(dt);
  
        // Second date
        ChronoLocalDateTime dt1
            = LocalDateTime.parse("2018-12-06T19:21:12");
        System.out.println(dt1);
  
        try {
            // Compare both dates
            System.out.println(dt1.compareTo(dt));
        }
        catch (Exception e) {
            System.out.println(e);
