Why is my brain melting on "equals()" vs. "=="?
The following prints out:

false
false
true
false

But I don't understand what makes
the StringBuffer objects behave differently. TIA

Thanks Pho Tek,
That link sums it up. I did just discover my answer on another group. I also discovered that String overrides hashCode() to return based on the contents of the String rather than the unique values normally associated with Object's hashCode().
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
