Dear all,
What is the need for overriding equals() & hashcode() in Collections .
Normally every instance by default inherits Object class which has equals() & hashcode() . Then why we should override it?
Regards.

See what comes out. You need to have two identical objects recoognised as identical to each other for the Collections to work.
