The description of Object class equal method says for any non-null reference values x and y, this method returns true if and only if x and y refer to the same object (x == y has the value true).



The above code displays true. o1 and o2 refer 2 different objects. inside equals method we have code "return this==obj" .when o1 and o2 refer different objects == should return false. but why i am getting true?

how the equals method of object different from equals method of String?

The Integer class overrides the equals method.

I noticed that you are comparing Integers in your code snippet, which is why I asked.

This is the equals implementation of String



And this is the implementation for Object.java




And for Integer.java we have
