HI all,
I am stuck in a situation where i need to merge the contents of two long[].
Heres the example for my requirement

I know the routine way of running for loops to copy the contents from one array to other...
IS THERE ANY OTHER EFFICIENT WAY OF DOING THIS.
Regards
Reshma

Check into System.arrayCopy()
You should be able to create a third array with a length equal to the sum of the other two. Then just use this method to place the elements from the first two into the third array.

I'm not sure if I approve of this interruption. But this tiny ad checks out:
