Use equalsIgnoreCase() in Java to check for equality between two strings ignoring the case.

Let’s say the following are our two strings.

String one = "rocky";
String two = "Rocky";

Both are equal, but the case is different. Since the method ignore case, both of these strings would be considered equal.

Here, we are checking the same.

if(one.equalsIgnoreCase(two)) {
System.out.println("String one is equal to two (ignoring the case) i.e. one==two");
}else{
System.out.println("String one is not equal to String two (ignoring the case) i.e. one!=two");
}

The following is the complete example.

## Example

Live Demo

public class Demo {
public static void main(String[] args) {
String one = "rocky";
String two = "Rocky";
if(one.equalsIgnoreCase(two)) {
System.out.println("String one is equal to two (ignoring the case) i.e. one==two");
}else{
System.out.println("String one is not equal to String two (ignoring the case) i.e. one!=two");
}
}
}

## Output

String one is equal to two (ignoring the case) i.e. one==two
