With Groovy 1.8 the
equals() method is added to
Map. This means we can check if maps are equals. They are equals if both maps have the same size, and keys and values are the same.
def map1 = [user: 'mrhaki', likes: 'Groovy', age: 37] def map2 = [age: 37.0, likes: 'Groovy', user: 'mrhaki'] def map3 = [user: 'Hubert Klein Ikkink', likes: 'Groovy'] assert map1.equals(map2) assert map1 == map2 assert !map1.equals(map3) assert map2 != map3
