Hello Folks,

For the following question, why the line 1 and 2 are not correct. This is comparing string literal instead of Object. Pls explain to me.

Thanks, Raghu.K


class Test{
public static void main(String[] args){
int result = 0;
String s1 = "abc";
Object s2 = "abc";
StringBuffer s3=new StringBuffer("abc");
if(s1.equals(s2))//Line 1
result+=10;
if(s1==s2)//Line 2
result+=20;
if(s2.equals(s3))
result+=30;
System.out.println(result);
}
}

Both line 1 and 2 are true.
