Code snippet :

Integer i1 = 1000;
Integer i2 = 1000;

if(i1 != i2)
System.out.println("different objects");
if(i1.equals(i2))
System.out.println("meaningfully equal");

Produces output :

different objects
meaningfully equal

However,

Integer i1 = 10;
Integer i2 = 10;

if(i1 == i2)
System.out.println("same objects");
if(i1.equals(i2))
System.out.println("meaningfully equal");

Produces output :

same objects
meaningfully equal

Could someone explain the output in both scenarios ?
