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);

        ChronoLocalDateTime dt1
            = LocalDateTime.parse("2018-12-06T19:21:12");
        System.out.println(dt1);
