Hi Friend,

The methods Equals and HashCode() are the methods of Object class.

The Equals() method returns boolean values checks whether the two objects are equal or not.
The HashCode() returns the hash code value for the object.

Using these methods,an object can be used to store and retrieve from the hash table,hash map or hash set.
