The equals() method of OffsetDateTime class in Java checks if this date-time is equal to another date-time.
Syntax:  

public boolean equals(Object obj)

Parameter: This method accepts a single parameter other which checks if this date-time is equal to another date-time.
Return Value: It returns true if this is equal to the other date-time, else it returns false.
Below programs illustrate the equals() method:
Program 1 : 

Java




// 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 comparing we get " + date1.equals(date2));
    }
}

Output

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

Program 2
 

Java




// 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("2015-12-12T13:30:30+05:00");
 
        // Prints both dates
        System.out.println("Date1: " + date1);
        System.out.println("Date2: " + date2);
 
        // Compare both
        System.out.println("On comparing we get " + date1.equals(date2));
    }
}

Output

Date1: 2018-12-12T13:30:30+05:00
Date2: 2015-12-12T13:30:30+05:00
On comparing we get false
