Byte equals() method in Java with examples
  • Last Updated : 05 Dec, 2018


The equals() method of Byte class is a built in method in Java which is used to compare the equality given Object with the instance of Byte invoking the equals() method.

Syntax

ByteObject.equals(Object a)

Parameters: It takes an Object type object a as input which is to be compared with the instance of the Byte object calling the equals method.

Return Value: It return an boolean value. It returns true if the value of ‘a’ is equal to the value of ByteObject.

Below is the implementation of equals() method in Java:



Example 1:




// Java code to demonstrate
// Byte equals() method
  
class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // creating a Byte object
        Byte a = new Byte("20");
  
        // creating a Byte object
        Byte b = new Byte("20");
  
        // equals method in Byte class
        boolean output = a.equals(b);
  
        // Printing the output
        System.out.println("Does " + a + " equals "
                           + b + " : " + output);
    }
}
Output:
Does 20 equals 20 : true

Example 2:




// Java code to demonstrate
// Byte equals() method
  
class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // creating a Byte object
        Byte a = new Byte("2");
  
        // creating a Byte object
        Byte b = new Byte("20");
  
        // equals method in Byte class
        boolean output = a.equals(b);
  
        // Printing the output
        System.out.println("Does " + a + " equals "
                           + b + " : " + output);
    }
}
Output:
Does 2 equals 20 : false
