OptionalInt equals() method in Java with examples

OptionalInt help us to create an object which may or may not contain a Int value. The equals(Object obj) method help us to compare this OptionalInt object with the passed object as a parameter and it returns true if objects are equal.

The other object is considered equal to this OptionalInt if:

  • it is also an OptionalInt and;
  • both instances have no value present or;
  • the present values are “equal to” each other via ==.

Syntax:



public boolean equals(Object obj)

Parameters: This method accepts an obj which is an object to be tested for equality.

Return value: This method returns true if the other object is “equal to” this object otherwise false.

Below programs illustrate equals(Object obj) method:

import java.util.OptionalInt;
  
public class GFG {
  
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // Create first OptionalInt object
        OptionalInt opInt1
            = OptionalInt.of(7258);
  
        System.out.println("OptionalInt 1: "
                           + opInt1.toString());
  
        // Create second OptionalInt object
        OptionalInt opInt2
            = OptionalInt.of(7258);
  
        System.out.println("OptionalInt 2: "
                           + opInt2.toString());
  
        // Check if these two objects are equal
        // using equals(Object obj)
        System.out.println("Are both objects equal: "
                           + opInt1.equals(opInt2));
    }
}

Output:

OptionalInt 1: OptionalInt[7258]
OptionalInt 2: OptionalInt[7258]
Are both objects equal: true
