Join Peggy Fisher for an in-depth discussion in this video Using strings, part of Up and Running with Java.
- Strings are technically not a primitive data type.…But since it is used so often, it is sometimes included…when discussing primitive data types.…String variables are stored as an array…or a sequence of characters.…Strings can be a literal constant,…such as the sentence Hello World.…Note that strings are enclosed in double quotes,…while characters are enclosed in single quotes.…They can be defined by using the string data type,…which is again, technically a sequence of characters.…
Two or more strings can be added together…using concatenation.…So you can combine the strings, Hello and World…to create one string Hello World.…It is also possible to break a string up…into smaller pieces using the substring methods.…A substring can be a single character, the entire string,…or some portion of the string.…We can obtain the length of any string…using a method called length.…We will discuss these methods shortly.…Let's revisit our program to calculate the cost of a trip.…
This time, we will modify the program to ask the user…
