Please see this:

package com.programming.class18;

import java.util.Scanner;

public class BiggestOfTwo {

	public static void main(String[] args) {
		Scanner scanner = new Scanner(; //Using Scanner, we can take the input at runtime
		System.out.println("Enter First Number--- ");
		int firstNumber = scanner.nextInt();
		System.out.println("Enter Second Number--- ");
		int secondNumber = scanner.nextInt();
		int difference = firstNumber - secondNumber;
		System.out.println("Difference is " + difference);

		//This is how comparison goes
		if (firstNumber == secondNumber)
			System.out.println("both are equal");
		else if (firstNumber > secondNumber)
			System.out.println("First Number " + firstNumber + " is greater");
			System.out.println("Second Number " + secondNumber + " is greater");
