public boolean equals(Object obj)

Parameter: This method takes MessageFormat objects which will be compared with the current MessageFormat object.
Return Value: if both the MessageFormat 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  MessageFormat
            MessageFormat mf1
                = new MessageFormat("{0, date, #}, {1, time, #}, {0, number}");
 
            // creating and initializing  MessageFormat
            MessageFormat mf2
                = new MessageFormat("{0, date, #}, {1, time, #}, {0, number}");
 
            // compare both object
            // using equals() method
            boolean i = mf1.equals(mf2);
 
            // display result
            if (i)
                System.out.println(
                    "mf1 is equals to mf2");
            else
                System.out.println(
                    "mf1 is not equal to mf2");
        }
 
        catch (ClassCastException e) {
 
            System.out.println("Exception thrown : " + e);
        }
    }
}
Output: 



mf1 is equals to mf2

 

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  MessageFormat
            MessageFormat mf1
                = new MessageFormat("{0, date, #}, {1, time, #}, {0, number}");
 
            // creating and initializing  MessageFormat
            MessageFormat mf2
                = new MessageFormat("{0, date, #}, {0, time, #}, {0, number}");
 
            // compare both object
            // using equals() method
            boolean i = mf1.equals(mf2);
 
            // display result
            if (i)
                System.out.println(
                    "mf1 is equals to mf2");
            else
                System.out.println(
                    "mf1 is not equal to mf2");
        }
 
        catch (ClassCastException e) {
 
            System.out.println("Exception thrown : " + e);
        }
    }
}
Output: 
mf1 is not equal to mf2
