SimpleTimeZone Class equals() method

  • equals() method is available in java.util package.
  • equals() method is used to check whether this SimpleTimeZone and the given object (ob) are equals or not.
  • equals() method is a non-static method, it is accessible with the class object and if we try to access the method with the class name then we will get an error.
  • equals() method does not throw an exception at the time of checking the equality of two objects.


    public boolean equals(Object ob);


  • Object ob – represents the object to check with this object for equality.

Return value:

The return type of the method is boolean, it returns true when both the objects are equal otherwise it returns false.


// Java program to demonstrate the example 
// of boolean equals(Object ob) method of 
// SimpleTimeZone

import java.util.*;

public class EqualsOfSimpleTimeZone {
    public static void main(String args[]) {
        // Instantiate SimpleTimeZone object
        TimeZone s_tz = SimpleTimeZone.getDefault();
        System.out.println("s_tz: " + s_tz);

        // By using clone() method is to
        // return shallow copy of this
        // simpletimezone s_tz
        Object stz_clone = s_tz.clone();
        System.out.println("s_tz.clone(): " + stz_clone);

        // By using equals() method is to
        // check the equality of two SimpleTimeZone
        // objects
        boolean status = s_tz.equals(stz_clone);
        System.out.println("s_tz.equals(stz_clone): " + status);


s_tz: sun.util.calendar.ZoneInfo[id="GMT",offset=0,dstSavings=0,useDaylight=false,transitions=0,lastRule=null]
s_tz.clone(): sun.util.calendar.ZoneInfo[id="GMT",offset=0,dstSavings=0,useDaylight=false,transitions=0,lastRule=null]
s_tz.equals(stz_clone): true
