    Default Help writing if statement for two equal arrays

    I need to write a if statement that checks if two arrays are equal and then performs some task.

    i.e.

    if java.util.Arrays.equals(data1, data2) = true

    then

    { do something }

    else if java.util.Arrays.equals(data1, data2) = false

    {do something else}

    thanks!

    Did you look at the Arrays class to see if it has a method to compare the contents of two arrays?

    If not, you will have to write your own method to do the comparison.

    if java.util.Arrays.equals(data1, data2) = true)

    You'll need to use the == operator to compare things. = is the assignment operator
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
