string pool IV notes

String str = new String("Cat"); //[1] inefficiency

Based on .. Net effect of above statement — either 1 or 2 instantiations

> At class-loading time, JVM picks up all string literals in the class file and populates the string pool. IIF this “Cat” is the first occurrence then it would be instantiated in the string pool.

Net effect so far is 0 or 1 instantiation.

> At runtime, the new() forces JVM to instantiate a brand new object, in the regular heap, unrelated to the string pool.

Net effect now is 1 or 2 instantiations.

[1] Note this is (almost) never needed according to P20 [[effJava]]
