    Default How to Compare two Dates

    This example code uses the Calendar class to compare two dates.

    Java Code:
    import java.util.*;
    import java.text.*;
    
    public class DemoDate {
      public static void main(String args[]){
        DemoDate a = new DemoDate();
        }
    
      DemoDate() {
    
        String DATE_FORMAT = "yyyy-MM-dd";
        java.text.SimpleDateFormat sdf = 
              new java.text.SimpleDateFormat(DATE_FORMAT);
        Calendar calender1 = Calendar.getInstance();
        
        Calendar calendar2 = Calendar.getInstance();
        calender1.set(2006, 04 , 28); 
        calendar2.set(2006, 04 , 28); 
        
        System.out.print(sdf.format(calender1.getTime()));
        
        if (calender1.before(calendar2)) {
           System.out.print(" is before ");
           }
        if (calender1.after(calendar2)) {
           System.out.print(" is after ");     
          }  
        if (calender1.equals(calendar2)) {
           System.out.print(" same as ");     
          }  
        System.out.print(sdf.format(calendar2.getTime()));
        }
      }

    String startDate = "1/23/2008" ; // MM/DD/YYYY
    String endDate = "5/20/2018" ; // MM/DD/YYYY

    String startTime = "10:00 PM" ; // hh:mm a
