    Default Reference variable

    Hello all. I am re-reading "reference" variable material.
    OK

    Reference variables store the address of the object, They do not the store the actual object.

    String str = "Java Programming";
    The system allocates memory space for "Java Programming" starting at location 1234.
    Then the system stores location1234
    in the variable str.

    So str will have 1234, not "Java Programming".

    Am I right?
    Thanks
