The isAfter() method of ChronoLocalDateTime interface in Java is used to check if the date, passed as the parameter, is after this ChronoLocalDateTime instance or not. It returns a boolean value showing the same.

Syntax:

default boolean isAfter(ChronoLocalDateTime otherDate)

Parameter: This method accepts a parameter otherDate which specifies the other date-time to be compared to this ChronoLocalDateTime. It should not be null.

Returns: The function returns boolean value showing if this date-time is after the specified date-time.

Below programs illustrate the ChronoLocalDateTime.isAfter() method:



Program 1:




// Program to illustrate the isAfter() method
  
import java.util.*;
import java.time.*;
import java.time.chrono.*;
  
public class GfG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        // Parses the date
        ChronoLocalDateTime dt1
            = LocalDateTime.parse("2018-11-03T12:45:30");
  
        // Prints the date
        System.out.println(dt1);
  
        // Parses the date
        ChronoLocalDateTime dt2
            = LocalDateTime.parse("2016-12-04T12:45:30");
  
        // Prints the date
        System.out.println(dt2);
  
        // Compares both dates
        System.out.println(dt1.isAfter(dt2));
    }
}
Output:
2018-11-03T12:45:30
2016-12-04T12:45:30
true

Program 2:




// Program to illustrate the isAfter() method
  
import java.util.*;
import java.time.*;
import java.time.chrono.*;
  
public class GfG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        // Parses the date
        ChronoLocalDateTime dt1
            = LocalDateTime.parse("2018-11-03T12:45:30");
  
        // Prints the date
        System.out.println(dt1);
  
        // Parses the date
        ChronoLocalDateTime dt2
            = LocalDateTime.parse("2019-12-04T12:45:30");
  
        // Prints the date
        System.out.println(dt2);
  
        // Compares both dates
        System.out.println(dt1.isAfter(dt2));
    }
}
Output:
2018-11-03T12:45:30
2019-12-04T12:45:30
false
