The hashCode() method of java.lang.reflect.Constructor class is used to return a hashcode for this Constructor object. The hashcode is always the same if the constructed object doesn’t change. Hashcode is a unique code generated by the JVM at the time of class object creation. We can use hashcode to perform some operation on hashing related algorithms like a hashtable, hashmap, etc. We can search for an object with that unique code.
public int hashCode()
Parameters: This method accepts nothing.
Return: This method returns a hash code integer value for this object.
Below programs illustrate hashCode() method:
Hash Code count = -1114099497
Hash Code count for string class constructor = 1195259493
