How to compare StringBuffer object to String object in java?


Description:

The below example shows how to compare StringBuffer object with String object. String object provides contentEquals() method to compare content with a StringBuffer object.


Code:
package com.myjava.string;

public class MyStringComp {

    public static void main(String a[]){
    
        String c = "We are comparing the content with a StringBuffer content";
        StringBuffer sb =
			new StringBuffer("We are comparing the content with a StringBuffer content");
        /**
         * We can use contentEquals() method to compare content with a StringBuffer.
         * It returns boolean value.
         */
        if(c.contentEquals(sb)){
            System.out.println("The content is equal");
        } else {
            System.out.println("The content is not equal");
        }
        StringBuffer asb =
			new StringBuffer("You cannot compare the content with a String content");
        if(c.contentEquals(asb)){
            System.out.println("The content is equal");
        } else {
            System.out.println("The content is not equal");
        }

What is wrapper class?
Everything in java is an object, except primitives. Primitives are int, short, long, boolean, etc. Since they are not objects, they cannot return as objects, and collection of objects. To support this, java provides wrapper classes to move primitives to objects. Some of the wrapper classes are Integer, Long, Boolean, etc.
Famous Quotations
Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.
