EnumMap equals() Method in Java with Examples
  • Last Updated : 11 Jul, 2018

The Java.util.EnumMap.equals(obj) in Java is used to compare the passed object with this EnumMap for the equality. It must be kept in mind that the object passed must be a map of the same type as the EnumMap.

Syntax:

boolean equals(Object obj)

Parameter: The method takes one parameter obj of Object type and refers to the map to be compared with this map.

Return Value: If the specified object is equal to the map, the method returns true else false.

Below programs illustrate the working of the equals() method:



Program 1:




// Java program to demonsrate equals() method
import java.util.*;
  
// An enum of gfg ranking worldwide and in India
public enum gfg {
    Global_2018,
    India_2018,
    China_2018
}
;
  
class Enum_map {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        EnumMap<gfg, Integer> mp1 = new EnumMap<gfg, Integer>(gfg.class);
  
        EnumMap<gfg, Integer> mp2 = new EnumMap<gfg, Integer>(gfg.class);
  
        // Values are associated in mp1
        mp1.put(gfg.Global_2018, 800);
        mp1.put(gfg.India_2018, 72);
  
        // Values are associated in mp2
        mp2.put(gfg.Global_2018, 800);
        mp2.put(gfg.India_2018, 72);
  
        // Stores the result
        boolean res1 = mp1.equals(mp2);
  
        // Prints the result
        System.out.println("Map1 equal to Map2: " + res1);
  
        mp2.put(gfg.China_2018, 1607);
  
        // Stores the result
        boolean res2 = mp1.equals(mp2);
  
        // Prints the result
        System.out.println("Map1 equal to Map2: " + res2);
    }
}


Output:

Map1 equal to Map2: true
Map1 equal to Map2: false

Program 2:




// Java program to demonsrate equals() method
import java.util.*;
  
// an enum of gdp growth rate
// in recent years of India
public enum gdp {
    Ind_2015,
    Ind_2016,
    Ind_2017,
    Ind_2018,
    Ind_2019
}
;
  
class Enum_map {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        EnumMap<gdp, String> mp1 = new EnumMap<gdp, String>(gdp.class);
  
        EnumMap<gdp, String> mp2 = new EnumMap<gdp, String>(gdp.class);
  
        // Values are associated in mp1
        mp1.put(gdp.Ind_2015, "8.4");
        mp1.put(gdp.Ind_2016, "9.2");
        mp1.put(gdp.Ind_2017, "6.1");
        mp1.put(gdp.Ind_2018, "7.7");
  
        // Values are associated in mp2
        mp2.put(gdp.Ind_2015, "8.4");
        mp2.put(gdp.Ind_2016, "9.2");
        mp2.put(gdp.Ind_2017, "6.1");
        mp2.put(gdp.Ind_2018, "7.7");
  
        // Stores the result
        boolean res1 = mp1.equals(mp2);
  
        // Prints the result
        System.out.println("Map1 equal to Map2: " + res1);
  
        mp2.put(gdp.Ind_2019, "7.0");
  
        // Stores the result
        boolean res2 = mp1.equals(mp2);
  
        // Prints the result
        System.out.println("Map1 equal to Map2: " + res2);
    }
}


Output:

Map1 equal to Map2: true
Map1 equal to Map2: false
