Q:

compare strings in java

// These two have the same value
new String("test").equals("test") // --> true 

// ... but they are not the same object
new String("test") == "test" // --> false 

// ... neither are these
new String("test") == new String("test") // --> false

// These two have the same value
new String("test").equals("test") // --> true 

// ... but they are not the same object
new String("test") == "test" // --> false 

// ... neither are these
new String("test") == new String("test") // --> false

System.out.println("hey".equals("hey")); //prints true

/*
	always use .equals() instead of ==,
    because == does the compare the string content but
    loosely where the string is stored in.
