The specificity of a combinator is the sum of the specificities of its selectors.
|Constructor and Description|
Creates a combinator.
|Modifier and Type||Method and Description|
Indicates whether some other object is "equal to" this one.
Returns the first selector of this combinator.
Returns the second selector of this combinator.
Returns the specificity of this selector.
Returns a hash code value for the object.

equals method for class
Object implements the most discriminating possible
equivalence relation on objects; that is, for any non-null reference values

Note that it is generally necessary to override the
hashCode method whenever this method
is overridden, so as to maintain the general contract for the
hashCode method, which
states that equal objects must have equal hash codes.

The specificity allows to determine in which order the rules of a stylesheet should be applied.
A specificity is composed of four numbers (defined by CSS2 specification):

equals(Object)method, then calling the
hashCodemethod on each of the two objects must produce the same integer result.
Object.equals(java.lang.Object)method, then calling the
hashCodemethod on each of the two objects must produce distinct integer results. However, the programmer should be aware that producing distinct integer results for unequal objects may improve the performance of hash tables.
As much as is reasonably practical, the hashCode method defined by class
return distinct integers for distinct objects. (This is typically implemented by converting the
internal address of the object into an integer, but this implementation technique is not required
by the JavaTM programming language.)
