hi, I'm a C++ program and new in Java, how can I override the operators (==,+=,=,-= etc) in Java ? For example in c++ we do :

Class Test
{
   int value;
   Test()
   {
     value= 0;
   };
   
  const Test& operator =(Test t)
  {
    this->value = t.value;
  }
  bool operator ==(Test t)
  {
    return this->value == t.value;
  }
}

how to do this in Java?
