The following program compiles from the command prompt and uses the String object in the switch statement.

Question : Has anyone that has taken the exam seen the String object used with the switch statement?

Most definitely. I only recall one example (took it yesterday). It was something like:

The output in this case would be:
"Not a fish at all"
Due to the case of the string blah, which is all lower-case, while the "Tuna" case has a capital 'T'.
I agree. Here's the link:
