Guys,

Consider the code below from Dan Chisholm,



I was thinking that c = a+b; and d = a + b; will refer to the same onjects in the memory?

How come Line 1 prints false?? Anyone please?

If the declaration is modified like this,
final String a = "A", b = "B", c = a+b, d = a+b;
(c == d) will be true.

Hope you will be able to conclude.

This program prints true and true.
When a or b or both changed to non-final, both are false.
Hope this helps.

Hi Jothi..

yes you are write dear. the output is

false
false
true

As i know, String objects are immutable. yes it is 100% true.
then why concat operation performed on String.

in //line1

left side of == concat two string object(a and b)results into a 3rd new object lets say x,and right side of == also concat two string object(a and b)results into a fourth new object lets say y.
.........
then dear both x and y two different object created in memory....hence == operator returns false...

line 2 evaluated similer way...

hope this helps...Anu

Saif,

I tried your code and it gave me true, true, true.

Can you tell me the logic why if one is a final String then it prints true?? Confused??
