Parameter: This method accept a single mandatory parameter date2 the other date to compare to and not null.

Return Value: The function returns true if this date is equal to the specified date.

Below programs illustrate the isEqual() method of LocalDate in Java:

Program 1:




// Program to illustrate the isEqual() method
  
import java.util.*;
import java.time.*;
  
public class GfG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        // Parses the first date
        LocalDate dt1 = LocalDate.parse("2018-11-27");
        // Parses the second date
        LocalDate dt2 = LocalDate.parse("2018-11-27");
  
        // Checks
        System.out.println(dt1.isEqual(dt2));
    }
}

Output:

true

Program 2:




// Program to illustrate the isEqual() method
  
import java.util.*;
import java.time.*;
  
public class GfG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        // Parses the first date
        LocalDate dt1 = LocalDate.parse("2018-11-27");
        // Parses the second date
        LocalDate dt2 = LocalDate.parse("2015-11-27");
  
        // Checks
        System.out.println(dt1.isEqual(dt2));
    }
