I HAVE READ SOMEWHERE THAT UNLIKE MANY OTHER PROGRAMMING LANGUAGES ,JAVA DOES NOT SUPPORT OPERATOR OVERLOADING;BUT THEN WHAT ABOUT + OPERATOR? DOES IT LEAD TO CONCATENATION AS WELL AS ADDITION (AND IS HENCE BEING OVERLOADED)???
SORRY TO HEAR ABOUT YOUR BROKEN CAPS LOCK KEY. HERE, MAYBE I CAN UNSTICK IT... there, that's better. The built-in "+" operator is indeed overloaded to mean string concatenation as well as addition. Depending on the language you're comparing Java to, you might also think that "/" (for example) is overloaded to mean both integer and floating-point division. But Java doesn't let you define your own meanings for operators, and that's what you read. The built-in meanings are all you've got.
