ByteBuffer equals() method in Java with Examples
  • Last Updated : 22 Oct, 2019

The equals() method of java.nio.ByteBuffer class is used to check whether or not the given buffer is equal to another object.

Two byte buffers are equal if, and only if,

  • They have the same element type,
  • They have the same number of remaining elements, and
  • The two sequences of remaining elements, considered independently of their starting positions, are pointwise equal.

A byte buffer is not equal to any other type of object.

Syntax:

public boolean equals(Object ob)

Parameters: This method takes the ob(The object to which this buffer is to be compared) as a parameter.



Return Value: This method returns true if, and only if, this buffer is equal to the given object.

Below are the examples to illustrate the equals() method:

Examples 1:




// Java program to demonstrate
// equals() method
  
import java.nio.*;
import java.util.*;
  
public class GFG {
  
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // Declaring the capacity of the ByteBuffer 1
        int capacity1 = 5;
  
        // Declaring the capacity of the  ByteBuffer 2
        int capacity2 = 5;
  
        // Creating the ByteBuffer
        try {
  
            // creating object of ByteBuffer 1
            // and allocating size capacity
            ByteBuffer bb1 = ByteBuffer.allocate(capacity1);
  
            // creating object of ByteBuffer 2
            // and allocating size capacity
            ByteBuffer bb2 = ByteBuffer.allocate(capacity2);
  
            // putting the int to byte typecast value in ByteBuffer 1
            bb1.put((byte)20);
            bb1.put((byte)30);
            bb1.put((byte)40);
            bb1.rewind();
  
            // putting the value in ByteBuffer 2
            bb2.put((byte)20);
            bb2.put((byte)30);
            bb2.put((byte)40);
            bb2.rewind();
  
            // print the ByteBuffer 1
            System.out.println(" ByteBuffer 1:  "
                               + Arrays.toString(bb1.array()));
  
            // print the ByteBuffer 2
            System.out.println(" ByteBuffer 2:  "
                               + Arrays.toString(bb2.array()));
  
            // checking the equality of both ByteBuffer
            boolean b = bb1.equals(bb2);
  
            // checking if else condition
            if (b)
                System.out.println(" both are equal");
            else
                System.out.println(" both are not equal");
        }
  
        catch (IllegalArgumentException e) {
            System.out.println("Exception thrown : " + e);
        }
  
        catch (ReadOnlyBufferException e) {
            System.out.println("Exception thrown : " + e);
        }
    }
}


Output:

ByteBuffer 1:  [20, 30, 40, 0, 0]
 ByteBuffer 2:  [20, 30, 40, 0, 0]
 both are equal

Examples 2:




// Java program to demonstrate
// equals() method
  
import java.nio.*;
import java.util.*;
  
public class GFG {
  
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // Declaring the capacity of the ByteBuffer 1
        int capacity1 = 5;
  
        // Declaring the capacity of the  ByteBuffer 2
        int capacity2 = 3;
  
        // Creating the ByteBuffer
        try {
  
            // creating object of ByteBuffer 1
            // and allocating size capacity
            ByteBuffer bb1 = ByteBuffer.allocate(capacity1);
  
            // creating object of ByteBuffer 2
            // and allocating size capacity
            ByteBuffer bb2 = ByteBuffer.allocate(capacity2);
  
            // putting the int to byte typecast value in ByteBuffer 1
            bb1.put((byte)20);
            bb1.put((byte)30);
            bb1.put((byte)40);
            bb1.rewind();
  
            // putting the value in ByteBuffer 2
            bb2.put((byte)20);
            bb2.put((byte)30);
            bb2.put((byte)40);
            bb2.rewind();
  
            // print the ByteBuffer 1
            System.out.println(" ByteBuffer 1:  "
                               + Arrays.toString(bb1.array()));
  
            // print the ByteBuffer 2
            System.out.println(" ByteBuffer 2:  "
                               + Arrays.toString(bb2.array()));
  
            // checking the equality of both ByteBuffer
            boolean b = bb1.equals(bb2);
  
            // checking if else condition
            if (b)
                System.out.println(" both are equal");
            else
                System.out.println(" both are not equal");
        }
  
        catch (IllegalArgumentException e) {
            System.out.println("Exception thrown : " + e);
        }
  
        catch (ReadOnlyBufferException e) {
            System.out.println("Exception thrown : " + e);
        }
    }
}


Output:

ByteBuffer 1:  [20, 30, 40, 0, 0]
 ByteBuffer 2:  [20, 30, 40]
 both are not equal
