Using getText() with a JTextField component?




Hello,

I am using the getText() JTextComponent method to retrieve a string form a
JTextField component.  The problem that I am getting is the string is
returned back, but it does pass a comparsion check when I compared it to
another string:


//ie lets say the string entered in the text field is "Mike"
String sName = m_nameTF.getText().trim();

//The following line works - prints "Mike
System.out.println(sName);

//This condition fails
if (sName == "Mike")
  System.out.println("yes");

Any suggestions?
