ParsePosition equals() method in Java with Example

  • Last Updated : 22 Jan, 2020

The equals() method of java.text.ParsePosition class is used to check if both the ParsePosition objects are same or not.

Syntax:

public boolean equals(Object obj)

Parameter: This method takes ParsePosition objects which will be compared with the current ParsePosition object.

Return Value: if both the ParsePosition 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 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
            // new ParsePosition Object
            ParsePosition pos_1
                = new ParsePosition(0);
  
            // Creating and initializing
            // new ParsePosition Object
            ParsePosition pos_2
                = new ParsePosition(0);
  
            // compare both object
            // using equals() mehtod
            boolean i = pos_1.equals(pos_2);
  
            // display result
            if (i)
                System.out.println(
                    "pos_1 is equals to pos_2");
            else
                System.out.println(
                    "pos_1 is not equal to pos_2");
        }
  
        catch (ClassCastException e) {
  
            System.out.println(e);
        }
    }
}
Output:
pos_1 is equals to pos_2

Example 2:




// 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
            // new ParsePosition Object
            ParsePosition pos_1
                = new ParsePosition(0);
  
            // Creating and initializing
            // new ParsePosition Object
            ParsePosition pos_2
                = new ParsePosition(1);
  
            // compare both object
            // using equals() mehtod
            boolean i = pos_1.equals(pos_2);
  
            // display result
            if (i)
                System.out.println(
                    "pos_1 is equals to pos_2");
            else
                System.out.println(
                    "pos_1 is not equal to pos_2");
        }
  
        catch (ClassCastException e) {
  
            System.out.println(e);
        }
    }
}
Output:
pos_1 is not equal to pos_2
