Java Date

The class Date epresents a specific instant in time, with millisecond precision.

After Method

Returns true if the invoking Date object contains a date that is later than the one specified by date, otherwise, it returns false.

Date today = DateUtils.addDays(new Date(), 0);
Date yesterday = DateUtils.addDays(new Date(), -1);

System.out.println("today - " + today.toInstant().toString());
System.out.println("yesterday - " + yesterday.toInstant().toString());
System.out.println("today.after(yesterday) - " + today.after(yesterday));
System.out.println("today.equals(yesterday) - " + today.equals(yesterday));
System.out.println("yesterday.after(today) - " + yesterday.after(today));

// Output
today - 2020-10-02T04:34:35.465Z
yesterday - 2020-10-01T04:34:35.480Z
today.after(yesterday) - true
today.equals(yesterday) - false
yesterday.after(today) - false

 

Before Method

Returns true if the invoking Date object contains a date that is earlier than the one specified by date, otherwise, it returns false.

Date today = DateUtils.addDays(new Date(), 0);
Date yesterday = DateUtils.addDays(new Date(), -1);

System.out.println("today - " + today.toInstant().toString());
System.out.println("yesterday - " + yesterday.toInstant().toString());

System.out.println("today.before(yesterday) - " + today.before(yesterday));
System.out.println("today.equals(yesterday) - " + today.equals(yesterday));
System.out.println("yesterday.before(today) - " + yesterday.before(today));

// output
today - 2020-10-02T15:48:24.823Z
yesterday - 2020-10-01T15:48:24.837Z
today.before(yesterday) - false
today.equals(yesterday) - false
yesterday.before(today) - true
