OffsetDateTime isEqual() method in Java with examples

  • Last Updated : 17 Dec, 2018

The isEqual() method of OffsetDateTime class in Java checks checks if this date is equal to the specified date-time and returns true if it is.

Syntax:

public boolean isEqual(OffsetDateTime other)

Parameter: This method accepts a single parameter other which checks if this date-time is equal to the 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 isEqual() method:



Program 1:




// Java program to demonstrate the isEqual() 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("Date1 equals Date2? "
                           + date1.isEqual(date2));
    }
}
Output:
Date1: 2018-12-12T13:30:30+05:00
Date2: 2018-12-12T13:30:30+05:00
Date1 equals Date2? true

Program 2:




// Java program to demonstrate the isEqual() 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("Date1 equals Date2? "
                           + date1.isEqual(date2));
    }
}
Output:
Date1: 2018-12-12T13:30:30+05:00
Date2: 2015-12-12T13:30:30+05:00
Date1 equals Date2? false
