Consider we have

Employee e1 = new Employee("TCS");
Employee e2 = new Employee("GS");
Employee e3 = new Employee("TCS");

where Employee is our class.

How should we implement the hashCode method so that we can have same hasCode value for objects e1 and e3.
Best Regards,

implementation of hashCode for above scenario is difficult as for my concern,is because Employee class not having variables to distinguish with parameterised constructor's parameter...
ofcourse return type of hashcode is int so how the int value relates to string and with that one it is different for different values.
so,if anybody can tell please...
