OffsetTime equals() method in Java with examples

  • Last Updated : 13 Dec, 2018

The equals() method of OffsetTime class in Java checks if this time is equal to another time. returns true if they are equal or false if they are not.

Syntax:

public boolean equals(Object obj)

Parameter: This method accepts a single mandatory parameter obj which specifies the other time which will be compared with.

Return Value: It returns true if both the time are equal, else it returns false.

Below programs illustrate the equals() method:



Program 1 :




// Java program to demonstrate the equals() method
  
import java.time.OffsetTime;
  
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));
    }
}
Output:
time1: 15:30:30+07:00
time1: 15:30:30+07:00
time1 when compared to time2 returns: true

Program 2 :




// Java program to demonstrate the equals() method
  
import java.time.OffsetTime;
  
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("12:10:30+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));
    }
}
Output:
time1: 15:30:30+07:00
time1: 12:10:30+07:00
time1 when compared to time2 returns: false
