Java String concatenation - How to combine two Strings

Java String concatenation FAQ: How do I merge/combine two Java String fields?

You can merge / concatenate /combine two Java String fields using the + operator, as shown in this Java String example code:

  String firstName = "Fred";
  String lastName  = "Flinstone";
  String fullName  = firstName + lastName;

The String fullName now contains "FredFlinstone". There is no space between "Fred" and "Flinstone" because we did not put a space in there.

One way to add a space to our new Java String is to put one in there, as shown in this example Java String merging code:

  String firstName = "Fred";
  String lastName  = "Flinstone";
  String fullName  = firstName + " " + lastName;

In that example, we are really combining/merging three Java Strings on that last line of code.

Java String concatenation - Summary

I hope these Java String concatenation examples have been helpful. As you can see, for simple string concatenation operations you can just add Java Strings together using the "+" operator. But as an important note, if you're going to be adding a lot of Java String objects together, it's much more efficient to use the Java StringBuffer class. Just search this site for "Java StringBuffer" to find more String concatenation examples.
