Short equals() method in Java with Examples
  • Last Updated : 05 Dec, 2018

The equals() method of Short class is a built in method in Java which is used to compare the equality given Object with the instance of Short invoking the equals() method.

Syntax

ShortObject.equals(Object a)

Parameters: It takes an Object type object a as input which is to be compared with the instance of the Short object calling the equals method.

Return Value: It return an boolean value. It returns true if the value of ‘a’ is equal to the value of ShortObject.

Below is the implementation of equals() method in Java:



Example 1:




// Java code to demonstrate
// Short equals() method
  
class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // creating a Short object
        Short a = new Short("20");
  
        // creating a Short object
        Short b = new Short("20");
  
        // equals method in Short class
        boolean output = a.equals(b);
  
        // Printing the output
        System.out.println("Does " + a
                           + " equals " + b
                           + " : " + output);
    }
}


Output:

Does 20 equals 20 : true

Example 2:




// Java code to demonstrate
// Short equals() method
  
class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // creating a Short object
        Short a = new Short("2");
  
        // creating a Short object
        Short b = new Short("20");
  
        // equals method in Short class
        boolean output = a.equals(b);
  
        // Printing the output
        System.out.println("Does " + a
                           + " equals " + b
                           + " : " + output);
    }
}


Output:

Does 2 equals 20 : false
