As written in the API:
The Java language provides special support for the string concatenation operator ( + )

This is a special support, and has nothing to do with operator overloading as in C++. It looks like one, but it's actually not part of the String class.

Please responnd fast


It is not recommended to ask things this way

hi Dipti Mishra
See Java Does not supports operator overloading bcoz It takes all i/p as string thats why not needed seperatoly. And U can add like "amiy"+*+""+3.0 etc... this supports in java and thats they not thought of Operator overlading...
