How to use the instanceof operator in Java?

The instanceof operator is used only for object reference variables. The operator checks whether the object is of a particular type (class type or interface type).

Example:

public class Test {
   public static void main(String args[]) {
      String name = "James";
      boolean result = name instanceof String;
      System.out.println(result);
   }
}

Output:

true
