I'm just starting with Java.
I wonder if there's a way to add a method so that any String can call that method, similar to how we have now
string1.equals(string2) that you could use
string1.equalsOr(string2, string3, string4, string5).
I know I can make my own static method, but wonder if I could make it available to any string.
If you want to check equality of your
string1 to a set of strings
string2, string3, string4, string5. It's better to use any collection (i.e.
List). For example, if you use
Arrays.asList(string2, string3, string4, string5).contains(string1)
it will give you the espected result.
