public interface Name extends CharSequence
An immutable sequence of characters. When created by the same implementation, objects implementing this interface must obey the general equals contract when compared with each other. Therefore,
Name objects from the same implementation are usable in collections while
Names from different implementations may not work properly in collections.
Name has a length of zero.
In the context of annotation processing, the guarantees for "the same" implementation must include contexts where the API mediated side effects of processors could be visible to each other, including successive annotation processing rounds.
boolean equals(Object obj)
true if the argument represents the same name as
Note that the identity of a
Name is a function both of its content in terms of a sequence of characters as well as the implementation which created it.

Compares this name to the specified

char values as the specified sequence.
