This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
It means whoever wrote it is trying to confuse you. There is some very bad coding in that line. I think you have copied it wrongly, too, adding a space; it will only compile if you write ++, but + + will give you an error.
You need to look up the precedence of the operators: . > ++ and ++ > + and + > everything else because it is in brackets.
1: Highest precedence . You are getting the "b" member of the object "a" (or the class "a" if it is static).
2: Next down ++. You are applying the pre-increment operator to it, increasing its value by 1, so it will return 1 more than its previous value.
3: + You are catenating the String object following, a single space.
4: () The whole thing is now the argument to the print method.
I am sure you can work the rest out for yourself. I am also sure you would never write that sort of code yourself, and hope if you ever did you would be sacked (if an employee) or failed (if a student) on the spot
