// Java program to demonstrate the equals() method
  
import java.time.OffsetDateTime;
import java.time.ZonedDateTime;
  
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // Parses the date1
        OffsetDateTime date1 = OffsetDateTime.parse("2018-12-12T13:30:30+05:00");
  
        // Parses the date2
        OffsetDateTime date2 = OffsetDateTime.parse("2018-12-12T13:30:30+05:00");
  
        // Prints both dates
        System.out.println("Date1: " + date1);
        System.out.println("Date2: " + date2);
  
        // Compare both
        System.out.println("On coparing we get " + date1.equals(date2));
    }
}

Output:

Date1: 2018-12-12T13:30:30+05:00
Date2: 2018-12-12T13:30:30+05:00
On coparing we get true
