OptionalLong equals() method in Java with examples

  • Last Updated : 01 May, 2019

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

The other object is considered equal to this OptionalLong if:

  • it is also an OptionalLong 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:

Program 1:




// Java program to demonstrate
// OptionalLong.equals(Object obj) method
  
import java.util.OptionalLong;
  
public class GFG {
  
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // Create first OptionalLong object
        OptionalLong opLong1
            = OptionalLong.of(45213246);
  
        System.out.println("OptionalLong 1: "
                           + opLong1.toString());
  
        // Create second OptionalLong object
        OptionalLong opLong2
            = OptionalLong.of(45213246);
  
        System.out.println("OptionalLong 2: "
                           + opLong2.toString());
  
        // Check if these two objects are equal
        // using equals(Object obj)
        System.out.println("Are both objects equal: "
                           + opLong1.equals(opLong2));
    }
}
Output:
OptionalLong 1: OptionalLong[45213246]
OptionalLong 2: OptionalLong[45213246]
Are both objects equal: true

Program 2:




// Java program to demonstrate
// OptionalLong.equals(Object obj) method
  
import java.util.OptionalLong;
  
public class GFG {
  
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        // Create first OptionalLong object
        OptionalLong opLong1
            = OptionalLong.of(317946492);
  
        System.out.println("OptionalLong 1: "
                           + opLong1.toString());
  
        // Create second OptionalLong object
        OptionalLong opLong2
            = OptionalLong.of(45213246);
  
        System.out.println("OptionalLong 2: "
                           + opLong2.toString());
  
        // Check if these two objects are equal
        // using equals(Object obj)
        System.out.println("Are both objects equal: "
                           + opLong1.equals(opLong2));
    }
}
Output:
OptionalLong 1: OptionalLong[317946492]
OptionalLong 2: OptionalLong[45213246]
Are both objects equal: false
