the code below does compile, so I think
b=i==j can be regarded as
b=true?
is that right? thanks
int i=10;
int j=10;
boolean b=false;
if(b=i==j)
System.out.println("True");

You got it!
the code demonstrate operator precedence, it shows that comparisons take place before assignments do
so (b = i == j) is the same as (b=(i==j)) --> (b=true) since i and j have the same value
