Arrays.equals() – check two arrays for equality

Returns true if the two specified arrays of ints are equal to one another. Two arrays are considered equal if both arrays contain the same number of elements, and all corresponding pairs of elements in the two arrays are equal. In other words, two arrays are equal if they contain the same elements in the same order. Also, two array references are considered equal if both are null.

Code Explanation
LineDescription
5Declaration and initialization of the array myArray with the values 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5.
6Declaration and initialization of the array mySecondArray with the values 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5.
8The equals() method returns a boolean expression. If two arrays are equal, true is returned.
import java.util.Arrays;

public class ArrayMethods {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        int[] myArray = { 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 };
        int[] mySecondArray = { 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 };

        System.out.print(Arrays.equals(myArray, mySecondArray));
    }
}
Output
true
