public boolean equals(Object object)

Parameters: This method accepts accepts a parameter object which is to be is equal to this ZoneOffset instance.

Return Value: This method returns a boolean value stating whether this ZoneOffset is equal to the instance passed as the parameter.



Below examples illustrate the ZoneOffset.equals() method:

Example 1:




// Java code to illustrate equals() method
  
import java.time.*;
  
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // Get the ZoneOffset instance
        ZoneOffset zoneOffset1
            = ZoneOffset.ofHours(5);
        System.out.println("ZoneOffset 1: "
                           + zoneOffset1);
  
        // Get the ZoneOffset instance
        ZoneOffset zoneOffset2
            = ZoneOffset.ofHours(5);
        System.out.println("ZoneOffset 2: "
                           + zoneOffset2);
  
        // Using equals() method
        System.out.println("ZoneOffset 1 "
                           + "is equal to ZoneOffset 2: "
                           + zoneOffset1.equals(zoneOffset2));
    }
}
Output:
ZoneOffset 1: +05:00
ZoneOffset 2: +05:00
ZoneOffset 1 is equal to ZoneOffset 2: true

Example 2:




// Java code to illustrate equals() method
  
import java.time.*;
  
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // Get the ZoneOffset instance
        ZoneOffset zoneOffset1
            = ZoneOffset.ofHours(5);
        System.out.println("ZoneOffset 1: "
                           + zoneOffset1);
  
        // Get the ZoneOffset instance
        ZoneOffset zoneOffset3
            = ZoneOffset.ofHours(3);
        System.out.println("ZoneOffset 3: "
                           + zoneOffset3);
  
        // Using equals() method
        System.out.println("ZoneOffset 1 "
                           + "is equal to ZoneOffset 3: "
                           + zoneOffset1.equals(zoneOffset3));
    }
}
Output:
ZoneOffset 1: +05:00
ZoneOffset 3: +03:00
ZoneOffset 1 is equal to ZoneOffset 3: false
