The StringBuffer class does not override the equals() method. It inherits it from the Object class.

i know it doesnt...there was a article that i read when we invoke equals on stringbuffers....true is returned only when both the objects are same.....someone showed me the whole code of equals method....something like

public boolean equals(Object 0)
{
//some code
}

With the information provided by Henry, it should be easy to find the source code of Object class on java.lang.Object source code, like this is the first result...
