    Default Issue with if logic

    First Thank you in Advance just for having a place for programmers to talk to each other..
    As I said in my title, I am new to java. 3rd week in class..
    I have an issue with my if statement project.. Its a long way from being done but anyway when i put in Admin it always goes to the else statement.. So I understand this is a Logic error..( Learned something )
    Here is my code if you could point a finger at where I need to focus my attention.. It would be greatly appreciated .. Thank you so much..
    import javax.swing.JOptionPane;
     
    class Name{
    	public static void main(String[] args){
    		String name = JOptionPane.showInputDialog(
                            null, "Please enter Name");
     
     
     
     
     
     
                  if(name == ("Admin")) { 
                     JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null,  name + " welcome " );
                     }
                     else
                     { 
                          JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null,  name + " Is not Correct! Goodbye! " );
                          } // End if
     
     
     
     
     
    	} //end main()
    } //end class

    Thank you so much, I guess a little more attention paid on my part would have solved the issue. Almost every example in our book has the int data declaration so its kinda confusing.. Thank you so much for clearing that up
