Concatenating two Strings in Java

In this section we will help you, how to concatenate two strings in java. String are sequence of character which is used in java programming language. String is a class in java which provide method to concatenate string in java. The method concat(), which return a new string by adding  two strings.

You can also concat string using "+" operator in java which is commonly used :

" Hello " + " Java"  which result in " Hello Java ".

" + " operator is also used with other data type. Let's use this "+" operator with other data type like as follows :

int id = 1;
String result=" Hello " + "your id is "+result;

As you can see the id is an integer but the output is in string as before. This is because id is converted internally into String representation within a String object. Compiler will convert the operand into its string equivalent whenever the other operand of the "+"  is an instance of String.

import java.util.Scanner;
public class Concatenate {
	public static void main(String args[])
	  String str=args[0].concat(args[1]);
