String a=new String("amit");
String b="arit";
String c=a.replace('m','r');
System.out.println(b==c);
when c String is created replace() returns "arit" which allready exists in the memory pool referenced by b. so why doesnt c refer to b? instead it creats a new String which results b==c to false
Strings always check the memory pool if the new String already
exists in memory, so y doesnt c pick b from pool rather it creates a new string why does this happen
Thanks,
pallavi

Pallavi,
Just because two strings have the same value doesn't mean they will be the same object. Take this for example:

yes ofcourse here they refer to new objects as new is used...... the issue was about pooling ......i got my answer( i think!)
String a=new String("amit");
String c=a.replace('r','m');
a==c now this is true as c is referring to the same pool a does
String b="arit";
String c=b.replace('m','r');
b==c this is also true as c is referrinf to same pool b does
String b="arit";
String c=a.replace('m','r');//c does not refer to b pool as we r using a.replace()
System.out.println(b==c); // therefore its false
i hope my logic is ryt

Use String.intern() to get the ref. fom the same string from the pool. Othrer things cannot assure the same string from the pool.. In fact new String() creates a new string itself irrespective of wheather it exists..
The declaration String s ="aaa";
String s1 = "aaa";
return u the same ref. as its a literal.
try this out.

Pallavi,
String.replace will actually create a new String with the "new" operator for you. It doesn't call intern() like Kaustubh mentioned. You would have to call replace().intern() before you could compare it to the other and get a true value (assuming the other was done the same way).

Consider this
When you say

Two objects are created.

And foll creates one object
String b = "arit";



Now when u execute
String c = a.replace('m','r'); one new object is created in Object Space

So final view is

b and c point to diff objs hence false.
