Venkat,
Where 's' will be stored depends upon whether it's local variable or instance variable! If it's local variable (primitive/reference), it will be stored in the stack.

But if it's instance variable, it will be stored inside the object of the class in which it's declared. Once an object is created on the heap, inside that object, variable 's' will be stored.

hth,
Harshil
