Java 中 toString()中的 StringBuilder vs String 串联

public String toString(){
    return "{a:"+ a + ", b:" + b + ", c: " + c +"}";
}
public String toString(){
    StringBuilder sb = new StringBuilder(100);
    return sb.append("{a:").append(a)
          .append(", b:").append(b)
          .append(", c:").append(c)
          .append("}")
          .toString();
}

答案

版本 1 是更可取的,因为它更短, 并且编译器实际上会将其转换为版本 2-无任何性能差异。

更重要的是,鉴于我们只有 3 个属性,这可能没有什么不同,但是您什么时候从 concat 切换到 builder?

在循环中进行连接的那一刻 - 通常是编译器无法StringBuilder替代StringBuilder

...
String result = "";
for (String s : hugeArray) {
    result = result + s;
}
...
StringBuilder sb = new StringBuilder();
for (String s : hugeArray) {
    sb.append(s);
}
String result = sb.toString();
String.format( "{a: %s, b: %s, c: %s}", a, b, c );

        long now = System.currentTimeMillis();
        slow();
        System.out.println("slow elapsed " + (System.currentTimeMillis() - now) + " ms");

        now = System.currentTimeMillis();
        fast();
        System.out.println("fast elapsed " + (System.currentTimeMillis() - now) + " ms");
    }

    private static void fast()
    {
        StringBuilder s = new StringBuilder();
        for(int i=0;i<100000;i++)
            s.append("*");      
    }

    private static void slow()
    {
        String s = "";
        for(int i=0;i<100000;i++)
            s+="*";
    }
}
slow elapsed 11741 ms
fast elapsed 7 ms

从 Java 1.5 开始,使用 “+” 和 StringBuilder.append()进行简单的一行连接即可生成完全相同的字节码。

因此,出于代码可读性考虑,请使用 “+”。

2 个例外:

  • 多线程环境:StringBuffer
  • 循环中的串联:StringBuilder / StringBuffer
public String myCatPlus(String[] vals) {
    String result = "";
    for (String val : vals) {
        result = result + val;
    }
    return result;
}

在 Java 9 中,版本 1 应该更快,因为它已转换为invokedynamic调用。可以在JEP-280 中找到更多详细信息:

这个想法是用对 java.lang.invoke.StringConcatFactory 的简单 invokedynamic 调用来替换整个 StringBuilder 追加操作,该调用将接受需要连接的值。

        appender.append(RandomStringUtils.randomAlphanumeric(i));

    // testing
