Posted By: Roosevelt Jenkins     Category: Java     Views: 29316

This article explains about relational operators in java with examples.

Relational operator compares two values and determines the relationship between them. Relational operators are used to test whether two values are equal, whether one value is greater than another, and so forth.

Below table lists relational operators in java.

Relational Operators In Java

 Operator

Meaning 

Example 

 ==

Equals 

a == b 

 !=

Not equals 

a != b 

 >

Greater than 

a > b 

 <  

Less than 

a < b 

 >= 

Greater than or equals 

a >= b 

 <= 

Less than or equals 

a <= b 



Precedence of Relational Operators

Highest to Lowest

Operator

1

>,  >=,  <, <=

2

==, !=


Syntax of Relational Operators

op1 relOptr op2

op1 is a first operand to compare.
op2 is a second operand to compare.
relOptr is a relational operator.


Examples of Relational Operators

Example 1 : Program that displays use of all relational operators i.e ==, !=, >, <, >= and <=

class RelOptrDemo 
{
   public static void main(String[] args) 
   {
int a = 10, b = 15, c = 15;

System.out.println("Relational Operators and returned values");
System.out.println(" a > b = " + (a > b)); 
System.out.println(" a < b = " + (a < b)); 
System.out.println(" b >= a = " + (b >= a)); 
System.out.println(" b <= a = " + (b <= a)); 
System.out.println(" b == c = " + (b == c)); 
System.out.println(" b != c = " + (b != c)); 
   }
}


Output

Relational Operators and returned values
a > b = false
a < b = true
b >= a = true
b <= a = false
b == c = true
b != c = false
