CompoundName equals() method in Java with Examples

The equals() method of a javax.naming.CompoundName class is used to compare this CompoundName with the specified object passed as a parameter and checks whether two objects are equal or not. If both objects are equal then the equals() method returns true else false. If passed obj is null or not a compound name then the method returns false. Two compound objects are equal if each component in one is equal to the corresponding component in the other.

Syntax:

public boolean equals(Object obj)

Parameters: This method accepts obj which is the non-null object to compare against.

Return value: This method returns true if obj is equal to this compound name, false otherwise.

Below programs illustrate the CompoundName.equals() method:

        props.put("jndi.syntax.direction",
                  "left_to_right");
  
        // create compound name object
        CompoundName CompoundName1
            = new CompoundName(
                "x:y:z", props);
        CompoundName CompoundName2
            = new CompoundName(
                "x:y:m", props);
  
        // apply equals()
        boolean flag
            = CompoundName1
                  .equals(CompoundName2);
  
        // print value
        if (flag)
            System.out.println(
                "CompoundName1 is "
                + "equal to CompoundName2");
        else
            System.out.println(
                "CompoundName1 is "
                + "not equal to CompoundName2");
    }
}
