Description

The java.math.MathContext.equals(Object x) compares this MathContext with the specified Object for equality.

Declaration

Following is the declaration for java.math.MathContext.equals() method

public boolean equals(Object x)

Overrides

equals in class Object

Parameters

  • x - Object to which this MathContext is to be compared

Return Value

This method returns true if and only if the specified Object is a MathContext object which has exactly the same settings as this object.

Exception

  • NA

Example

The following example shows the usage of math.MathContext.equals() method

package com.tutorialspoint;

import java.math.*;

public class MathContextDemo {

public static void main(String[] args) {

        // create 3 MathContext objects
        MathContext mc1, mc2, mc3;

        // assign context settings to mc1, mc2, mc3
        mc1 = new MathContext(2);
        mc2 = new MathContext(2, RoundingMode.HALF_UP);
	mc3 = new MathContext(2, RoundingMode.HALF_DOWN);

        // create 2 boolean objects
        Boolean b1, b2;

        // compare context settings of mc1 with mc2, mc3
        b1 = mc1.equals(mc2);
	b2 = mc1.equals(mc3);

        String str1 = "Context settings of mc1 and mc2 are equal is " + b1;
	String str2 = "Context settings of mc1 and mc3 are equal is " + b2;

	// print b1, b2 values
        System.out.println( str1 );
	System.out.println( str2 );
    }
}

Let us compile and run the above program, this will produce the following result:

Context settings of mc1 and mc2 are equal is true
Context settings of mc1 and mc3 are equal is false
