JAVA - Object Class & it’s methods

Gaurav Kothari

JAVA - Object Class & it’s methods : 

Object class is the top class in java. It means every single class internally extends Object class. It is a parent class of all other classes in java.

We can store any type of object in reference of object class. For example:

Object obj = new Emp(); // Here obj holds Emp

Object class has 11 methods in it. You can see these methods in source code of object class.

  • hashCode() - returns the hashcode number for this object. It returns distinct integers for distinct objects.
  • equals(Object obj) - compares the given object to this object.
  • clone() - throws CloneNotSupportedException creates and returns the exact copy (clone) of this object.
  • toString() - returns the string representation of this object.
  • finalize() - is invoked by the garbage collector before object is being garbage collected.
  • getClass() - returns the class object of “this” object or returns the Class class object of this object

For ex: Object obj = new String("Test");

            Class c = obj.getClass();

            System.out.println("Class of Object obj is : " + c.getName());

  • notify() - wakes up a thread that is in waiting state.
  • notifyAll() - wakes up all the threads that is in waiting state.
  • wait() - throws InterruptedException, makes current thread to wait, until another thread notifies (invokes notify() or notifyAll() method).
  • wait(long timeout) – parameterize wait
  • wait(long timeout,int nanos) – parameterize wait
