public boolean equals(Object obj)

Parameter: This method takes FieldPosition objects which will be compared with the current FieldPosition object.
Return Value: if both the FieldPosition objects are equal to each other than it will return true otherwise false.
Below are the examples to illustrate the equals() method:
Example 1: 

Java




// Java program to demonstrate
// equals() method
 
import java.text.*;
import java.util.*;
import java.io.*;
 
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] argv)
    {
        try {
 
            // Creating and initializing
            // new FieldPosition Object
            FieldPosition pos_1
                = new FieldPosition(
                    DateFormat.Field.AM_PM);
 
            // Creating and initializing
            // new FieldPosition Object
            FieldPosition pos_2
                = new FieldPosition(
                    DateFormat.Field.AM_PM);
 
            // compare both object
            // using equals() method
            boolean i = pos_1.equals(pos_2);
 
            // display result
            if (i)
                System.out.println(
                    "pos_1 is equals to pos_2");
            else
                System.out.println(
                    "pos_1 is not equal to pos_2");
        }
 
        catch (ClassCastException e) {
 
            System.out.println("Exception thrown : " + e);
        }
    }
}
Output: 



pos_1 is equals to pos_2

 

Example 2: 

Java




// Java program to demonstrate
// equals() method
 
import java.text.*;
import java.util.*;
import java.io.*;
 
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] argv)
    {
        try {
 
            // Creating and initializing
            // new FieldPosition Object
            FieldPosition pos_1
                = new FieldPosition(
                    DateFormat.Field.AM_PM);
 
            // Creating and initializing
            // new FieldPosition Object
            FieldPosition pos_2
                = new FieldPosition(
                    MessageFormat.Field.ARGUMENT);
 
            // compare both object
            // using equals() method
            boolean i = pos_1.equals(pos_2);
 
            // display result
            if (i)
                System.out.println(
                    "pos_1 is equals to pos_2");
            else
                System.out.println(
                    "pos_1 is not equal to pos_2");
        }
 
        catch (ClassCastException e) {
 
            System.out.println("Exception thrown : " + e);
        }
    }
}
Output: 
pos_1 is not equal to pos_2
