the first two System.out.println statements are printing false....

can anyone clarify my doubt??

For StringBuffer class,equals() method is not overridden as for String class{which tests for content and NOT reference).So For StringBuffer,== and equals() behaves in same manner.Right?

StringBuffer do not override eqauls method present in Object class
so will get the same method that the object class has..
and Object class has equals method that perfomrs == comparison underneath

so the result of sb1.eqausl(sb2) will b same as sb1==sb2 which in this case is false.

hope this helps
