Java Practices -> Implementing equals Sometimes the default implementation of equals has the desired behaviour (as in a type-safe enumeration, for example), but equals should usually compare state, not identity. This is particularly true for "data-centric" classes which map to database records. hashCode and equals are closely related: If you extend a concrete class, and add a new field which contributes to equals, then it's not possible to write a perfectly correct equals method for the new class. Instead, you should use composition instead of inheritance. (See Effective Java by Joshua Bloch for more information.) When implementing equals, fields are compared differently, according to their type: In an equals method, it's usually worthwhile to order field comparisons such that the most significant comparisons are performed first. Example 1 The above policies can be collected in a utility class: Car is a class which uses EqualsUtil to implement its equals method: Example 2 Items to note regarding this equals method:

WAY OUT OF THE BOX zifty.d9 99.10.08 WAY OUT OF THE BOX Theodor Holm Nelson Keio University and University of Southampton ============================================ Computer people don't understand computers. Oh, they understand the technicalities all right, but they don't understand the possibilities. Most of all, they don't understand that the computer world is entirely built out of artificial, arbitrary constructs. Word processing, spreadsheet, database aren't fundamental, they're just different ideas that different guys have whomped up, ideas that could be totally different in their structure. ccan Who are Anonymous? And what do they want? | thinq_ As the war of WikiLeaks gains a second front in cyberspace, governments, media outlets and businesses around the world are struggling to understand just who or what their adversary, Anonymous, is - and what it hopes to achieve.
