public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // Parses the time
        OffsetTime time1
            = OffsetTime.parse("15:30:30+07:00");
  
        // Parses the time
        OffsetTime time2
            = OffsetTime.parse("15:30:30+07:00");
  
        // gets the offset time1
        System.out.println("time1: "
                           + time1);
  
        // gets the offset time2
        System.out.println("time1: "
                           + time2);
  
        System.out.println("time1 when compared"
                           + " to time2 returns: "
                           + time1.equals(time2));
    }
}
