Hello, fellow developers!
Today, I came across an interesting situation while working on my Java code. I had a simple line of code where I wanted to concatenate some strings, like this:
String thing = "Something";
thing += " something else" + " and more.";
To my surprise, IntelliJ IDEA suggested four alternative ways to achieve the same result:
I'm curious to know why IntelliJ IDEA offered these alternatives and whether there's anything inherently wrong with using
+= for string concatenation.
Could anyone kindly explain the differences between these approaches and why one might be preferred over the others in certain situations? I'm keen to understand the performance, readability, and best practices associated with each option.
Looking forward to your insights and learning together!
Thank you in advance for your help.
