Program:

            /* ............... START ............... */
                
public class JavaEqualsExample {
	public static void main(String args[]) {
		String s1 = "Hello";
		String s2 = new String(s1);
		System.out.println(s1 + " equals " + s2 + " -> " + s1.equals(s2));
		System.out.println(s1 + " == " + s2 + " -> " + (s1 == s2));
	}
}
                /* ............... END ............... */
        

Output

Hello equals Hello -> true
Hello == Hello -> false

Notes:

  • The equals( ) method compares the characters inside a String object.
  • The == operator compares two object references to see wherther it is from same instance.
