        // Parses the time
        OffsetTime time1
            = OffsetTime.parse("15:30:30+07:00");
  
        // Parses the time
        OffsetTime time2
            = OffsetTime.parse("15:20:30+07:00");
  
        // gets the time1
        System.out.println("time1: "
                           + time1);
  
        // gets the time2
        System.out.println("time1: "
                           + time2);
  
        System.out.println("time1 is before time2: "
                           + time1.isBefore(time2));
    }
