/**
 * <p>Assists in implementing {@link Object#equals(Object)} methods.</p>
 *
 * <p> This class provides methods to build a good equals method for any
 * class. It follows rules laid out in
 * <a href="http://java.sun.com/docs/books/effective/index.html">Effective Java</a>
 * , by Joshua Bloch. In particular the rule for comparing <code>doubles</code>,
 * <code>floats</code>, and arrays can be tricky. Also, making sure that
 * <code>equals()</code> and <code>hashCode()</code> are consistent can be
 * difficult.</p>
 *
 * <p>Two Objects that compare as equals must generate the same hash code,
 * but two Objects with the same hash code do not have to be equal.</p>
 *
 * <p>All relevant fields should be included in the calculation of equals.
 * Derived fields may be ignored. In particular, any field used in
 * generating a hash code must be used in the equals method, and vice
 * versa.</p>
 *
 * <p>Typical use for the code is as follows:</p>
 * <pre>
 * public boolean equals(Object o) {
 *   if ( !(o instanceof MyClass) ) {
 *    return false;
 *   }
 *  MyClass rhs = (MyClass) o;
 *  return new EqualsBuilder()
 *                 .appendSuper(super.equals(o))
 *                 .append(field1, rhs.field1)
 *                 .append(field2, rhs.field2)
 *                 .append(field3, rhs.field3)
 *                 .isEquals();
 *  }
 * </pre>
 *
 * <p> Alternatively, there is a method that uses reflection to determine
 * the fields to test. Because these fields are usually private, the method,
 * <code>reflectionEquals</code>, uses <code>AccessibleObject.setAccessible</code> to
 * change the visibility of the fields. This will fail under a security
 * manager, unless the appropriate permissions are set up correctly. It is
 * also slower than testing explicitly.</p>
 *
 * <p> A typical invocation for this method would look like:</p>
 * <pre>
 * public boolean equals(Object o) {
 *   return EqualsBuilder.reflectionEquals(this, o);
 * }
 * </pre>
