The equals() method of MonthDay class in Java checks if this month-day is equal to another month-day.

Syntax:

public boolean equals(Object obj)

Parameter: This method accepts a parameter obj which specifies if this month-day is equal to another month-day.

Returns: The function returns true if this is equal to the other time.

Below programs illustrate the MonthDay.equals() method:

Program 1:




// Program to illustrate the equals() method
  
import java.util.*;
import java.time.*;
  
public class GfG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        // Parses the date
        MonthDay tm1 = MonthDay.parse("--12-06");
  
        // Uses the function
        LocalDate dt1 = tm1.atYear(2018);
  
        // Parses the date
        MonthDay tm2 = MonthDay.parse("--12-06");
  
        // Uses the function
        LocalDate dt2 = tm2.atYear(2018);
  
        // Prints the date
        System.out.println(dt1.equals(dt2));
    }
}

Output:

true

Program 2:




// Program to illustrate the equals() method
  
import java.util.*;
import java.time.*;
  
public class GfG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        // Parses the date
        MonthDay tm1 = MonthDay.parse("--10-06");
  
        // Uses the function
        LocalDate dt1 = tm1.atYear(2018);
  
        // Parses the date
        MonthDay tm2 = MonthDay.parse("--12-06");
  
        // Uses the function
        LocalDate dt2 = tm2.atYear(2018);
  
        // Prints the date
        System.out.println(dt1.equals(dt2));
    }
