    There are two ways of comparison in Java. In you just want to match value of the string

    Object.equals() 
    

    will be used. It simply compares the string values. While if you use == to compare, it will check the object reference. So

    new String("test").equals("test") // --> true 
    new String("test") == "test" // --> false , since they are not the same object
    new String("test") == new String("test") // --> false, both point to different objects.
