 Q1. How and Why Strings are interned in Java ?Core Java2017-01-25 11:00:00

Ans. String class has a public method intern() that returns a canonical representation for the string object. String class privately maintains a pool of strings, where String literals are automatically interned.

these are automatically interned so as to have efficient String comparison using == operator instead of equals which is usually slower.
