How do I compare two dates?
Use the compareTo method of java.util.Date.
it says that if both date are equal then it returns 0
> 0 - if one date is greater than another
< 0 - for one date is lesser than another

import java.util.*;

public class Main {
public static void main(String args[])
Date today=new Date();
Date myDate=new Date(today.getYear(),today.getMonth()-1,today.getDay());
System.out.println("My Date is"+myDate);
System.out.println("Today Date is"+today);
System.out.println("Today Date is Lesser than my Date");
else if(today.compareTo(myDate)>0)
System.out.println("Today Date is Greater than my date");
System.out.println("Both Dates are equal");
