Example:

In the example below, the java.lang.Boolean.equals() method is used to compare given Boolean objects for equality.

import java.lang.*;

public class MyClass {
  public static void main(String[] args) {
    
    //creating Boolean objects
    Boolean b1 = true;
    Boolean b2 = true;
    Boolean b3 = false;

    //checking Boolean objects for equality
    System.out.println("Is b1 == b2?: " + b1.equals(b2)); 
    System.out.println("Is b1 == b3?: " + b1.equals(b3));    
  }
}

The output of the above code will be:
