Can someone help me in camparing two javabeans values?

I have used the from org.apache.commons.beanutils.BeanComparator;

I have tried to use the compare function but it is throwing classcast exception?

I have two java beans employeeBean and deptBean.

Can I use like bleow to compare the values of the bean?

You are using the no argument constructor of BeanComparator. Have you executed the setProperty() method? If you do not then BeanComparator will try to compare the two objects the "usual way". Alternatively, you can use one of the other two BeanComparator constructors.
I agree. Here's the link:
