Below programs illustrate the working of equals() method:



Program 1:




// Java code to illustrate equals() method
  
import java.util.*;
  
public class Locale_Demo {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // Creating a new locale
        Locale first_locale
            = new Locale("en", "US");
        Locale sec_locale
            = new Locale("en", "US");
  
        // Displaying first locale
        System.out.println("First Locale: "
                           + first_locale);
  
        // Displaying second locale
        System.out.println("Second Locale: "
                           + sec_locale);
  
        // Displaying the equality
        System.out.println(first_locale
                               .equals(sec_locale));
    }
}
Output:
First Locale: en_US
Second Locale: en_US
true

Program 2:




// Java code to illustrate equals() method
import java.util.*;
  
public class Locale_Demo {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // Creating a new locale
        Locale first_locale
            = new Locale("ar", "SA");
        Locale sec_locale
            = new Locale("en", "GB");
  
        // Displaying first locale
        System.out.println("First Locale: "
                           + first_locale);
  
        // Displaying second locale
        System.out.println("Second Locale: "
                           + sec_locale);
  
        // Displaying the equality
        System.out.println(first_locale
                               .equals(sec_locale));
    }
}

First Locale: ar_SA
