To compare two string in Java Programming, you have to ask to the user to enter the two string and start comparing using the compareTo() method.

Following Java Program ask to the user to enter the two string to check whether the two strings are equal or not :

 

SOURCE CODE ::

 

import java.util.Scanner;
 
class Compare_Strings
{
   public static void main(String args[])
   {
      String s1, s2;
      Scanner in = new Scanner(System.in);
 
      System.out.println("Enter the first string");
      s1 = in.nextLine();
 
      System.out.println("Enter the second string");
      s2 = in.nextLine();
 
      if ( s1.compareTo(s2) > 0 )
         System.out.println("First string is greater than second.");
      else if ( s1.compareTo(s2) < 0 )
         System.out.println("First string is smaller than second.");
      else   
         System.out.println("Both strings are equal.");
   }
}
