Groovy - after()


Advertisements

Tests if this date is after the specified date.

Syntax

public boolean after(Date when)

Parameters

When – The date to compare against.

Return Value − True if and only if the instant represented by this Date object is strictly later than the instant represented by when; false otherwise.

Following is an example of the usage of this method −

class Example {
   static void main(String[] args) {
      Date olddate = new Date("05/11/2015");
      Date newdate = new Date("05/12/2015");
      Date latestdate = new Date();
		
      System.out.println(olddate.after(newdate)); 
      System.out.println(latestdate.after(newdate));
   } 
}

When we run the above program, we will get the following result −

false 
true
