EqualsUtil.javaAPI DocJaudiotagger 2.0.42177Wed Mar 30 16:11:42 BST 2011org.jaudiotagger.utils


public final class EqualsUtil extends Object
Collected methods which allow easy implementation of equals.

Example use case in a class called Car:

public boolean equals(Object aThat){
if ( this == aThat ) return true;
if ( !(aThat instanceof Car) ) return false;
Car that = (Car)aThat;
EqualsUtil.areEqual(this.fName, that.fName) &&
EqualsUtil.areEqual(this.fNumDoors, that.fNumDoors) &&
EqualsUtil.areEqual(this.fGasMileage, that.fGasMileage) &&
EqualsUtil.areEqual(this.fColor, that.fColor) &&
Arrays.equals(this.fMaintenanceChecks, that.fMaintenanceChecks); //array!

Arrays are not handled by this class. This is because the Arrays.equals methods should be used for array fields.

public static booleanareEqual(boolean aThis, boolean aThat)

        return aThis == aThat;
public static booleanareEqual(char aThis, char aThat)

        return aThis == aThat;
public static booleanareEqual(long aThis, long aThat)

        * Implementation Note
        * Note that byte, short, and int are handled by this method, through
        * implicit conversion.
        return aThis == aThat;
public static booleanareEqual(float aThis, float aThat)

        return Float.floatToIntBits(aThis) == Float.floatToIntBits(aThat);
public static booleanareEqual(double aThis, double aThat)

        return Double.doubleToLongBits(aThis) == Double.doubleToLongBits(aThat);
public static booleanareEqual(java.lang.Object aThis, java.lang.Object aThat)
Possibly-null object field.

Includes type-safe enumerations and collections, but does not include arrays. See class comment.

        return aThis == null ? aThat == null : aThis.equals(aThat);
