CompoundName startsWith() method in Java with Examples

The startsWith() method of a javax.naming.CompoundName class is used to check whether compound name which is passed as a parameter is a prefix of this compound name or not. A compound name ‘X’ is a prefix of this compound name if this compound name object ends with ‘X’. If X is null or not a compound name object, false is returned.

Syntax:

public boolean startsWith(Name n)

Parameters: This method accepts n which is the possibly null compound name to check.

Return value: This method returns true if n is a CompoundName and is a prefix of this compound name, false otherwise.

Below programs illustrate the CompoundName.startsWith() method:

        Properties props = new Properties();

        props.put("jndi.syntax.direction",
                  "left_to_right");
  
        // create compound name object
        CompoundName CompoundName1
            = new CompoundName(
                "1:2:4:6", props);
        CompoundName CompoundName2
            = new CompoundName(
                "2:4:6", props);
  
        // apply startsWith()
        boolean Flag
            = CompoundName1
                  .startsWith(CompoundName2);
  
        // print value
        if (Flag)
            System.out.println(
                "CompoundName1 starts with "
                + " CompoundName2");
        else
            System.out.println(
                "CompoundName1 not starts with "
                + " CompoundName2");
    }
