I am processing form values using Enumeration class in a JSP and would like to know how to deal with fieldnames I dont want.
In the below I dont want to display FieldA but the output shows it even when I try and write condition for it:


Output:
FieldCC
FieldA
OtherField
aField
..more fields etc..

The FieldA should not output.

Is this the right way to do String comparisons in Java?

Are you new to Java?

In Java, the == operator (and its relations like !=) is a test for identity, not for equality. It asks, "are these objects the same?". It does not ask "do these objects have the same value?"

For that, you need to use the equals() method of String.

Sorry to take your time.

It did work:

I had a misspelling.
I printed the article about the equals() method and I appreciate your reponses and time!

No problem, it's what Javaranch is for.

I'd strongly suggest beefing up your Java skills before delving much more deeply into JSP. You'll find that time well spent.
