    Lightbulb Having problem to stop reading strings

    System.out.println ("Enter Books Names, Enter ST to Stop Reading:");

    for (i = 0; i < 10; i++)

    {

    Names [i] = S.next ();

    if (Names [i] == "ST")

    break;

    }

    When I type St, nothing happened and the loop continues ?! This not happened to me before when i use integers.

    Thank u in advance
