Java String class

So we are given to write the exact output of the following code:

class stri123{

public static void main(String[] args) {

String name = "University Grants Commission";

boolean sword = true;

for(int i = 0; i < name.length(); i++){


System.out.println(name.charAt(i) );

if(name.charAt(i) = = '')

sword = true;


sword = false;




I coded this on NetBeans and found it is showing errors at the following lines(** represent error-indicating lines);

if(name.charAt(i) = = '') **

sword = true;

else **

sword = false;

What could possibly be the reasons for these errors and what is the exact output of the above code?
