Question 1:

Do we need to override the clone method if we implement the Cloneable interface, if there is no specific functionality defined.

If we have to override , what is the benefit of such override.

Question 2:

The below code is from other site (Source:http://javaconceptoftheday.com/difference-between-shallow-copy-vs-deep-copy-in-java/) ,

In the deep copy example

In the deep copy example the clone method definition is modified , even if we don’t override it and have another course object, add it to the student object and use the set method for changing the field , its going to behave the same.

What is the benefit of such override?

Example similar to the above:

Course course=new Course(“subj1″,”subj2”,"subj3");
Student std=new Student(123,“student1”,course);
Student std2=(Student ) std.clone();
Course course2=new Course(“subj1″,”subj2”,"subj3");

is this definition and the overrided clone method definition are the same?

To paraphrase Iñigo Montoya: "You keep using that phrase; it doesn't actually mean what you think it means." -- again, you probably mean "real-world" not "real time".

thanks for the correction

Yes i have looked in to the documentation , during the iteration of the list using the method next it returns the element and moves to next position but in the case of nextIndex it returns the index position but it does not move the position

now i get it that its not necessary to product distinct integer results if objects are not equal but if it produces it enhances performance, but am curious to know whether we can make such sample code where objects are not equal using equals method but hashcode produces same integer results for the objects.

Correction in the topic heading it has to be previousIndex

When we use the next method of the ListIterator interface it returns the element and moves to the next position

in the case of the nextIndex or previousIndex method it returns the element position but not moving the next position , then in real time scenario when is the nextIndex method useful?

Hello Junilu ,

The case where the objects are unequal using equals method , my understanding is if objects are unequal in that case the hashcodes of the objects must be unequal, consider the below example.



Both countries are not equal
Country 1 hashcode:70793526
Country 2 hashcode:-1514818128

this case i was able to get different hashcodes , i believe this is the point you were trying to highlight in the post.

But in the other case  i was not able to have an example that s how i started this thread ;)

Thanks Henry,

that was a nice example where we run in to the scenario of having same hashcodes for two objects but the objects are different

I would like to know any real time scenario example where hashcodes are equal for two objects but the objects are not equal
