String concatenation as argument to 'StringBuilder.append()' call

Reports String concatenation used as the argument to StringBuffer.append(), StringBuilder.append() or Appendable.append().

Such calls may profitably be turned into chained append calls on the existing StringBuffer/Builder/Appendable saving the cost of an extra StringBuffer/Builder allocation. This inspection ignores compile-time evaluated String concatenations, in which case the conversion would only worsen performance.


void bar(StringBuilder builder, String name) { builder.append("Hello," + name); //warning builder.append("Hello," + "world"); //no warning }
