public class Solution

{ public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception

    BufferedReader reader = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(;
    System.out.println("Enter the first name from the keyboard: ");
    String a = reader.readLine();
    System.out.println("Enter the second name from the keyboard: ");
    String b = reader.readLine();
    if (a.equals(b))
        System.out.println("Names are identical");
    else if (a.length() == b.length())
    System.out.println("Name lengths are equal");
