hi friends please go thru the following code snippets and clarify my doubt.

class comptest

public static void main(String rgs[])
float f=10;
double d=10;



public class comptest1
public static void main(String[] args)
double d = Integer.MAX_VALUE;
float f= Integer.MAX_VALUE;
if (f == d)
System.out.println(" not equal ");

the code of class comptest prints true while the class comptest1 doesnt.please clarify why as we are comparing float and double in both the cases.
