(Disregard) How similar is Android's Java to the regular Java?

[EDIT] It turns out the question is in the FAQ right here on the forums. Thank you to Ulf Dittmer for the assistance and pointing out the redundancy of my question. [/EDIT]

I know that the Java SE APIs are absent. I'm just wondering if all of the syntactic rules of Java still apply, if hashCode and equals still work (or depending upon what you're trying to do, don't work ) the same way, inner classes, varargs, anonymous classes, arrays, etc....

And also, how much of the common APIs do you need to re-implement yourself? Buffered IO? Collections? TextFormat? Locale? Database access?

I'm sorry for the time waster. I don't know how I missed the link to that FAQ.

No sweat. The headers of the forum start pages are a bit crowded, so it's easy to overlook the link. I've made it bold now.
