Error with Scanner variable in while

Hello, everybody. I'm new in Java and I find very complicated because of the errors that I come across with. The problem that arisen is from this piece of code:

Main Class:

public class Main {

public static void main(String[] args){

    Answer a = new Answer();

    String ans = null;

    while(ans != "A"){

        ans = a.create();

        System.out.print(ans + "\n");




Answer class:

import java.util.Scanner;

public class Answer {

public String create(){

    Scanner s = new Scanner(;




What I want is that the program allows me to writer something down, in the case that what I wrote down was not the letter A, the program has to allow me to write down else, otherwise it would stop. But, even though I write "A", the program is still on, telling me that I have to write something else. What's wrong with the code?
