    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // Duration using parse() method
        Duration duration1
            = Duration.parse("P2DT3H4M");
  
        // Duration using ofDays() method
        Duration duration2
            = Duration.ofDays(10);
  
        // Compare the durations
        // using equals() method
        System.out.println(duration1
                               .equals(duration2));
    }
}
Output:
false

Example 2:




// Java code to illustrate equals() method

            = Duration.ofHours(5);
  
        // Duration using ofHours() method
        Duration duration2
            = Duration.ofHours(5);
