Hi Experts,

Good Day!

Well, I was trying to clone an object in JAVA, it worked fine but when I was trying to compare the "equality" of the same cloned object with the "original" object by using equals() method, Eclipse gives me an error saying that the cloned object variable (cd2 in my code which is given below) can not be resolved to a variable type.

Here's the code I was trying to run:



Can anyone please look into this and find out what the actual issue is.

Thanks in advance!

The cd2 reference variable is a local variable. And local variables are only in scope in the block that it is declared in. So, in your example, that variable is not in scope outside of the try block.

And, Java, not JAVA. It's not an acronym.
