String is a very special class in JAVA.
String s=new String("abc"): jvm create a String Object contained "abc" then return a refrence pointed to s. SO s a refrence not a real object.
String s = "abc": jvm first use String.equals to find whether there is a same object in "string pool". if it get it, it will return this refrence pointed to s.if not, it will create a object in "string pool" and return the refrence. so you can try a experiment like this;
String s1 = new String("abc");
String s2 = new String("abc");
use "==" to see whether they are equal. and use "String.equal()" to see whether they are equal.
hope it will help you!

Just a reminder - this is an english language only site. I removed the text in the earlier post that was not english.

at the VERY least, if you post non-English, you must provide a translation. Even then, the non-English portion may still get deleted, as we cannot verify the translation.

There are only two hard things in computer science: cache invalidation, naming things, and off-by-one errors
I agree. Here's the link:
