Does anyone knows what would be the effect on memory/runtime to have private someString = "" variables declared in various classes in a project ?
Would it be better to have one static final EMPTY_STRING somewhere (in StringUtil) to assign there instead ?

This empty Strings are automatically interned, so no need to worry about them.
