    So would this be false:
    Java Code:
    class A {
        String hello = "Hello";
    class B {
        String hello = "Hello";
    class Main {
        public static void main(String args[]) {
            System.out.println(new A().hello == new B().hello);
    No, every single .class file has its own area of literal Strings; the class loader loads these Strings in the single String pool. So your example prints "true". There is a restriction to that single pool: Strings have to be shorter than 64K chars and every single area in a .class file can 'only' contain as much as 65K Strings. (not much of a restriction, but nevertheless ...)

    kind regards,
