Use "==" to compare variables. "=" is used for assignment.

?

You are not allowed to place assignments (=) in if statements. You are only allowed to make comparisons in if statements (==) and call methods that return boolean. This is a Java build-in security checking mechanism.

. . . which is why using == true or == false is not only bad style, but potentially error-prone if you writey = instead of ==.
