what is diff string and stringbuffer..

Answer / monika

string is immutable, that is it can not be extended.whereas
StringBuffer is mutable and can be extended.
Fro example :
Consider 2 statement : "Welcome " and "to Java World".
now assign first statement to string and string buffer.
String str = "Welcome" & StringBuffer strBuff = new
Now if we add 2nd statement to both then :
str= str + "to Java World" -> In this case, it would dump
all the memory allocated with "welcome" and allocate a new
memory space to the entire string "Welcome to Java World" .
On the other hand, in strBuff :-
strBuff.append("to Java World") -> if simply allocate a
new memory space to only 2nd statement and add to link to
previous name.

String is immutable that once the value assigned to object
cannot be modified.Suppose if we want to perform
concatenation another string object will be prepared and

are having 2 objects

StringBuffer is Mutable we can change the value of the
object even the value is assigned to the object.

string is immutable,that we can not be modify its value.
when we assign any new value to String variable.a new object
is created on heap memory and that string variable refers to
that object.

StringBuffer is mutable so we can be modify its value.
as it refers to the same object and changes the state of
that object
