Hello all ,

String s = "abc";
String s2 = new String("abc");

if(s==s2) // this is true

then

String s = "abc";
String s2 = new StringBuffer("abc").toString();
if(s==s2) // this condition will be false

What is the difference between this two codes.

Really?!?!? This is true? .... I don't think this is true.

This is false because the toString() method of the StringBuffer class will return a new String.
