public boolean equals(Object obj)

Parameter: This method takes an equivalent object as a parameter to compare with this Minguodate.

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 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
            // MinguoDate Object
            MinguoDate hidate1
                = MinguoDate.now();
  
            // creating and initializing
            // MinguoDate Object
            MinguoDate hidate2
                = MinguoDate.now();
  
            // comparing both date
            // by using equals() 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 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
            // MinguoDate Object
            MinguoDate hidate1
                = MinguoDate.now();
  
            // creating and initializing
            // MinguoDate Object
            MinguoDate hidate2
                = MinguoDate.of(2008, 03, 23);
  
            // comparing both date
            // by using equals() 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
