public boolean equals(Object obj)

Parameters : The function accepts an object obj as a mandatory parameter with which the MathContext is checked for equality.

Return Value: This method returns true if and only if the specified Object is a MathContext object with same context settings as this object.



Examples:

Input : m1 = new MathContext(2, RoundingMode.UP), 
        m2 = new MathContext(2, RoundingMode.HALF_UP)
Output : false

Input :  m1 = new MathContext(2), 
         m2 = new MathContext(2, RoundingMode.HALF_UP)
Output : true

Below programs will illustrate the use of java.math.MathContext.equals() :
Program 1 :




// Java program to demonstrate equals() method
import java.math.*;
import java.io.*;
  
class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // Creating 2 MathContext objects m1 and m2
        MathContext m1, m2;
  
        // Assigning context settings to m1, m2
        m1 = new MathContext(2);
        m2 = new MathContext(2, RoundingMode.FLOOR);
  
        // Displaying the result
        System.out.println(m1.equals(m2));
    }
}
Output:
false

Program 2 :




// Java program to demonstrate equals() method
import java.math.*;
import java.io.*;
  
class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // Creating 2 MathContext objects m1 and m2
        MathContext m1, m2;
  
        // Assigning context settings to m1, m2
        m1 = new MathContext(2);
        m2 = new MathContext(2, RoundingMode.HALF_UP);
  
        // Displaying the result
        System.out.println(m1.equals(m2));
    }
}
Output:
true
