Arrays: Strictly identical arrays

Question: The arrays list1 and list2 are strictly identical if their corresponding elements are equal.
Write a method that returns true if list1 and list2 are strictly identical, using the following header:
public static boolean equals(int[] list1, int[] list2)
Write a test program that prompts the user to enter two lists of integers and displays whether the two are strictly identical.

Sample input/output
Enter 10 elements of array 1:
1 1 2 3 5 6 8 9 1 3
Enter 10 elements of array 2:
1 1 2 3 5 6 8 9 1 3
The two lists are strictly equal

Enter 10 elements of array 1:
1 1 2 3 5 6 8 9 1 2
Enter 10 elements of array 2:
1 1 2 3 5 6 8 9 1 3
The two lists are not equal
