What is the difference between instanceof and isInstance?
– instanceof : It is used to check to see if an object can be cast into a specified type without throwing a cast class exception.
– isInstance() : It determines if the specified Object is assignment-compatible with the object represented by this Class.
This method is the dynamic equivalent of the Java language instanceof operator.
The method returns true if the specified Object argument is non-null and can be cast to the reference type represented by this Class object without raising a ClassCastException. It returns false otherwise.
