hello everyone,
Output is coming not equal for same input.what is the error in this program?

import java.util.*;
class newobj_equal
{
    public static void main(String[] args) 
    {
        int eid;
        String ename;
        double salary;

        Scanner sin=new Scanner(System.in);

        System.out.println("Enter eid");z
        eid=sin.nextInt();
        System.out.println("Enter ename");
        ename=sin.next();
        System.out.println("Enter salary");
        salary=sin.nextDouble();

        emp e1=new emp();
        e1.accept(eid,ename,salary);
        e1.display();

        System.out.println("Enter eid");
        eid=sin.nextInt();
        System.out.println("Enter ename");
        ename=sin.next();
        System.out.println("Enter salary");
        salary=sin.nextDouble();

        emp e2=new emp(); 
        e2.accept(eid,ename,salary);
        e2.display();

    if(e1.equals(e2))
    System.out.println("Both equal");
    else
    System.out.println("Both not equal");

    }
};

class emp
{
    int eid;
    String ename;
    double salary; 
    public void accept(int eid,String ename,double salary)
    {
        this.eid=eid;
        this.ename=ename;
        this.salary=salary;
    }
    public void display()
    {
        System.out.println("Employee details is:");
        System.out.println("\nEmp id="+eid+"\nEmp name="+ename+"\nEmp salary="+salary);
    }
    public boolean equals(Object obj)
    {
        if(obj instanceof emp)
        {
        emp o=(emp)obj;
        return(eid==o.eid && ename==o.ename && salary==o.salary);
    }
    else

You are comparing the two string name using == operator. You should use String.equals(); to compare two string. == operator will compare the two string object and will result true only when both the string objects are same.
