Number of CPUs that are available to this JVM.

Calculates java.lang.Object.hashCode() of all elements in given collection recursively, calling on every object java.lang.Object.hashCode() and add this to result.

Check, weather one Object equals another by delegating to java.lang.Object.hashCode(). If one of both Objects is null, false is returned. If both Objects are null, true is returned.

o1 first Object
obj second Object
true, if both objects have same hashCode; false otherwise

             return false;
         return o1.hashCode() == obj.hashCode();

Load a property file as a resource stream and return the version property.
