thanx for the tremendous response for clearing my earlier doubt in string-pool.expecting similar responses from u all,i m posting yet another question and its regarding hashtable working.
we know that hashtable stores values as key/value pairs,where both key and value should b an object.
considering this code,
public static void main(
car ob1=new car();
car ob2=new car();
Hashtable hs=new Hashtable();
}//end of main
}// end of class car
now the o/p obtained is Rahi.i understand why is it so.as i have reffered the key ob1 for Rahi at last.
i want to know how the hashtable retreives the data,and how can i override equals() method,so that key/value pair is unique.
please give thw way as how i should override the equals() method to make my code more efficient.

Please don't post
It just wastes people's time if they answer a question that's already been answered elsewhere. I'm closing this one.
