Program:

            /* ............... START ............... */
                
public class JavaStringEqualExample {
	public static void main(String args[]) {
		String s1 = "JavaScan";
		String s2 = "JavaScan";
		String s3 = "Good-bye";
		String s4 = "HELLO";
		System.out.println(s1 + " equals " + s2 + " -> " + s1.equals(s2));
		System.out.println(s1 + " equals " + s3 + " -> " + s1.equals(s3));
		System.out.println(s1 + " equals " + s4 + " -> " + s1.equals(s4));
		System.out.println(s1 + " equalsIgnoreCase " + s4 + " -> " + s1.equalsIgnoreCase(s4));
	}
}
                /* ............... END ............... */
        

Output

JavaScan equals JavaScan -> true
JavaScan equals Good-bye -> false
JavaScan equals HELLO -> false
JavaScan equalsIgnoreCase HELLO -> false

Notes:

  • equals() methods considers the case.
  • equalsIgnoreCase() methods ignores the case during comparison.
  • Syntax : boolean equals(String str): Case sensitive comparison.
  • Syntax : boolean equalsIgnoreCase(String str): Case in-sensitive comparison
