Strange if, if else execution

Hi,

I'm not sure why this if/else statement is skipping over my first case. I have a string with the contents:

     "nearestneighbor"

then the code that checks it:

                if (strCode == "nearestneighbor")
                {
                    System.out.println("using nn");
                    m_ImageQuality = RenderingHints.VALUE_INTERPOLATION_NEAREST_NEIGHBOR;
                }
                else if (strCode == "bilinear")
                {
                    System.out.println("using bilinear");
                    m_ImageQuality = RenderingHints.VALUE_INTERPOLATION_BILINEAR;
                }
                else if (strCode == "bicubic")
                {
                    System.out.println("using bicubic");
                    m_ImageQuality = RenderingHints.VALUE_INTERPOLATION_BICUBIC;
                }
                System.out.println("The value of strCode was [" + strCode + "].");

Now it doesn't enter the first if block, which I think it should. The print out at the end of the cases verifies the contents, here's what's printed out:


    The value of strCode was [nearestneighbor].

I must be missing something really silly, why is it not matching?

Thanks

== tests for object equality
use equals() method to test string equality

eg.                 if (strCode.equals("nearestneighbor"))
