You have assigned null to s2 at line 15. It does not affect s1

Are you expecting a null pointer exception in this line ?
s1 == s2

It is other way of checking whether a string is null

if (s1==null) --> false

it works as expected....

Well, not anymore. You let s2 point to a different location, to be precise no location at all.

Yes, of course null is a different location.
