hashCode

public int hashCode()
Description copied from class: Object
Returns a hash code value for the object. This method is supported for the benefit of hashtables such as those provided by java.util.Hashtable.

The general contract of hashCode is:

As much as is reasonably practical, the hashCode method defined by class Object does return distinct integers for distinct objects. (This is typically implemented by converting the internal address of the object into an integer, but this implementation technique is not required by the JavaTM programming language.)

Overrides:
hashCode in class Object
Returns:
a hash code value for this object.

Object.equals(java.lang.Object), Hashtable

equals

public boolean equals(Object obj)
Description copied from class: Object
Indicates whether some other object is "equal to" this one.

The equals method implements an equivalence relation:

The equals method for class Object implements the most discriminating possible equivalence relation on objects; that is, for any 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).

Overrides:
equals in class Object
Parameters:
obj - the reference object with which to compare.
Returns:
true if this object is the same as the obj argument; false otherwise.
