DummyBean dum = new DummyBean();
System.out.println(dum.getDummy()); // prints 'foo'
DummyBean dumtwo = dum;
System.out.println(dumtwo.getDummy()); // prints 'foo'
System.out.println(dumtwo.getDummy()); // prints 'bar' but it should print 'foo'
So, I want to copy the 'dum' to dumtwo' and I want to change 'dum' without affecting the 'dumtwo'. But the above code is not doing that. When I change something in 'dum', the same change is happening in 'dumtwo' also.
I guess, when I say dumtwo = dum, Java copies the reference only. So, is there any way to create a fresh copy of 'dum' and assign it to 'dumtwo' ?
