    New to Java, need assistance with code

    I was wondering if anyone could help me get this code to work the way its intended.

    public class Main {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
    String a = new String("Wow");
    String b = "Wow";
    String c = a;
    String d = c;

    boolean b1 = a == b;
    boolean b2 = b.equals(b + "!");
    boolean b3 = !c.equals(a);

    if (b1 && b2 && b3) {

    What do I need to change to make this display "Success!" when executed?

    Any help will be greatly appreciated

    Every one of those booleans are false:
    a != b (strings are immutable)
    b != b + "!" (this wouldn't ever be true)
    c = a (c and a are the same object, so checking ! is false)

    So to get it to show success you can either negate each boolean during assignment or the if check, or you can negate the entire set of conditions after the check.
    PHP Code:
    header('HTTP/1.1 420 Enhance Your Calm'); 
    Been gone for a few months, and haven't programmed in that long of a time. Meh, I'll wing it ;)
