I'm trying to redirect my user based on the value in the database but somehow my code doesnt seem to work. Even if the value of Status is "Pending" in the database it goes to

response.sendRedirect("deletestudentlist.jsp"); instead of

response.sendRedirect("viewstudentlist.jsp");

The problem i presume is in (status1 == "Pending") but not sure what is wrong. Please do help. Thank you.



rst1 = stm1.executeQuery("select Status from appraisal");
String status1 ="";
while(rst1.next()){
status1 = rst1.getString("Status") ;

}

if(status1 == "Pending"){
response.sendRedirect("viewstudentlist.jsp");
} else{
response.sendRedirect("deletestudentlist.jsp");
}

Strings are not compared using "==", they're compared using the "equals" method. "==" tests the equality of the two String references, not the equality of the string contents.
