In this article, we will show you a few StringJoiner examples to join String.

1. StringJoiner

1.1 Join String by a delimiter


	StringJoiner sj = new StringJoiner(",");
        sj.add("aaa");
        sj.add("bbb");
        sj.add("ccc");
        String result = sj.toString(); //aaa,bbb,ccc

1.2 Join String by a delimiter and starting with a supplied prefix and ending with a supplied suffix.


	StringJoiner sj = new StringJoiner("/", "prefix-", "-suffix");
        sj.add("2016");
        sj.add("02");
        sj.add("26");
        String result = sj.toString(); //prefix-2016/02/26-suffix

2. String.join

StringJoiner is used internally by static String.join().

2.1 Join String by a delimiter.


	//2015-10-31
	String result = String.join("-", "2015", "10", "31" );

2.2 Join a List by a delimiter.


	List<String> list = Arrays.asList("java", "python", "nodejs", "ruby");
 	//java, python, nodejs, ruby
	String result = String.join(", ", list);

3. Collectors.joining

Two Stream and Collectors.joining examples.

3.1 Join List<String> example.


	List<String> list = Arrays.asList("java", "python", "nodejs", "ruby");

	//java | python | nodejs | ruby
	String result = list.stream().map(x -> x).collect(Collectors.joining(" | "));

3.2 Join List<Object> example.


	void test(){

        List<Game> list = Arrays.asList(
                new Game("Dragon Blaze", 5),
                new Game("Angry Bird", 5),
                new Game("Candy Crush", 5)
        );

        //{Dragon Blaze, Angry Bird, Candy Crush}
        String result = list.stream().map(x -> x.getName())
			.collect(Collectors.joining(", ", "{", "}"));
        
    }

    class Game{
        String name;
        int ranking;

        public Game(String name, int ranking) {
            this.name = name;
            this.ranking = ranking;
        }

        public String getName() {
            return name;
        }

        public void setName(String name) {
            this.name = name;
        }

        public int getRanking() {
            return ranking;
        }

        public void setRanking(int ranking) {
            this.ranking = ranking;
        }
    }
