Picture of Equivalent Data

Two Objects with Equivalent Data

Here is a picture of this situation. Even though both objects have equivalent data inside of them, (strA == strB) is false.

== reports false because there are two different objects, each with a unique reference.


three variables pointing at what?

Imagine that there are three reference variables: itemA, itemB, itemC. And say that

itemA == itemB

and that

itemB == itemC

How many objects are there?
