What number of different objects will variables b1 - b11 refer to after the following code execution?

Boolean b1 = true;
Boolean b2 = true;
Boolean b3 = true;
Boolean b4 = true;
Boolean b5 = true;
Boolean b6 = true;
Boolean b7 = true;
Boolean b8 = true;
Boolean b9 = new Boolean(true);
Boolean b10 = new Boolean(true);
Boolean b11 = new Boolean(true);
Explanation
In order to perform an unboxing conversion all the commands of the "b1 = true" type are implicitly replaced by "b1 = Boolean.valueOf(true)". A valueOf() method, in turn, returns a previously created object - Boolean.TRUE.
Therefore, b1-b8 variables refer to the same object (Boolean.TRUE), but separate instances are created for variables b9-b11. So there will be 4 different objects.

It is important to understand how to use it ...
