More about Objects and Classes
The relational operations on primitive data are ==, >=, <=, >, <, and !=. They compare two data values, when those values' type has an ordering. For example, integers are ordered by size or magnitude. The result of a relational operation is a boolean value: either True or False. The relational operators on objects like Strings are different, and they are expressed as methods. Pay special attention to the equality method, equals().
17. Different Objects, Equivalent Data
Answer:The two objects contain the same data: java.awt.Point[x=7,y=99]
Different Objects, Equivalent Data
The picture shows the situation. There are two distinct objects (each constructed out of different bytes of memory).
equals() method returns true because the data is equivalent.
==operator do the same as the
