The following examples are from Kathy's book




Does JVM sets the String constant pool within the heap or separately?

Which one does the ref var refers to in the 2nd example? The String object in the heap?

Objects relatd to String constant pool is also created in the heap but SCP has references to them.
2nd example's ref var refers to the object created by "new String();" statement which is created in the heap.
