What you actually are testing is whether the new operator has a higher precedence or a lower precedence than the . member access operator.

Hi,

intern() method
Returns a canonical representation for the string object.
A pool of strings, initially empty, is maintained privately by the class String.

When the intern method is invoked, if the pool already contains a string equal to this String object as determined by the equals(Object) method, then the string from the pool is returned. Otherwise, this String object is added to the pool and a reference to this String object is returned.

It follows that for any two strings s and t, s.intern() == t.intern() is true if and only if s.equals(t) is true.

For example

try this


this will output false

try this


this will output true
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
