The equals() method of Year class in Java is used to check if this Year object is equals to another Year object passes as a parameter. The comparison is based on the time-line position of the years.

Return Value: It returns a boolean True value if the current Year object is found to be equal to the Year object passed as a parameter to it, otherwise false.

Below programs illustrate the equals() method of Year in Java:
Program 1:






// Program to illustrate the equals() method
  
import java.util.*;
import java.time.*;
  
public class GfG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        // Creates first Year object
        Year firstYear = Year.of(2017);
  
        // Creates second year object
        Year secondYear = Year.of(2018);
  
        // Checks if the two year objects are
        // equal or not
        System.out.println(firstYear.equals(secondYear));
    }
}


Output:

false

Program 2:




// Program to illustrate the equals() method

import java.time.*;
  
public class GfG {
    public static void main(String[] args)

        // Creates first Year object
        Year firstYear = Year.of(2018);
  
        // Creates second year object
        Year secondYear = Year.of(2018);
