The java.lang.Long.equals() method is used to compare this object to the specified object. The result is true if and only if the argument is not null and is a Long object that contains the same long value as this object.


public boolean equals(Object obj)


obj Specify the object to compare with.

Return Value

Returns true if the objects are the same; false otherwise.




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

import java.lang.*;

public class MyClass {
  public static void main(String[] args) {
    //creating Long objects
    Long val1 = new Long("5");
    Long val2 = new Long("5");
    Long val3 = new Long("-5");

    //checking Long objects for equality
    System.out.println("Is val1 == val2?: " + val1.equals(val2)); 
    System.out.println("Is val1 == val3?: " + val1.equals(val3));    

The output of the above code will be:

Is val1 == val2?: true
Is val1 == val3?: false
