HijrahDate equals() method in Java with Example
  • Last Updated : 15 Feb, 2020

The equals() method of java.time.chrono.HijrahDate class is used to compare this hijrah date with another hijrah date.
Syntax: 

public boolean equals(Object obj)

Parameter: This method takes an equivalent object as a parameter to compare with this hijrahdate .
Return Value: This method returns true if both the dates are equal otherwise false.
Below are the examples to illustrate the equals() method:

Example 1: 

Java




// Java program to demonstrate
// equals() method
 
import java.util.*;
import java.io.*;
import java.time.*;
import java.time.chrono.*;
 
public class GFG {
  public static void main(String[] argv) {
    try {
      // creating and initializing
      // HijrahDate Object
      HijrahDate hidate1 = HijrahDate.now();
 
      // creating and initializing
      // HijrahDate Object
      HijrahDate hidate2 = HijrahDate.now();
 
      // getting Chrono Local date time
      // by using atTime() method
      boolean status = hidate1.equals(hidate2);
 
      // display the result
      if (status)
        System.out.println("both dates are equal");
      else
        System.out.println("both dates are not equal");
    } catch (DateTimeException e) {
      System.out.println("passed parameter can"
                         + " not form a date");
      System.out.println("Exception thrown: " + e);
    }
  }
}
Output
both dates are equal

Example 2:  

Java




// Java program to demonstrate
// equals() method
 
import java.util.*;
import java.io.*;
import java.time.*;
import java.time.chrono.*;
 
public class GFG {
  public static void main(String[] argv) {
    try {
      // creating and initializing
      //HijrahDate Object
      HijrahDate hidate1 = HijrahDate.now();
 
      // creating and initializing
      // HijrahDate Object
      HijrahDate hidate2
        = HijrahDate.of(1444, 03, 23);
 
      // getting Chrono Local date time
      // by using atTime() method
      boolean status = hidate1.equals(hidate2);
 
      // display the result
      if (status)
        System.out.println("both dates are equal");
      else
        System.out.println("both dates are not equal");
    } catch (DateTimeException e) {
      System.out.println("passed parameter can"
                         + " not form a date");
      System.out.println("Exception thrown: " + e);
    }
  }
}
Output
both dates are not equal
