Difference between == operater and .equals() method?

In general we use == operator for reference comparison whereas .equals() method for content comparision.


Note:

.equals() method present in object class also meant for reference comparison only based on our requirement we can override for content comparison .
In String class, all wrapper class and all collection classes .equals() method is overridden for content comparison.
