What's the difference between a StringBuffer and StringBuilder?

John Zukowski

The StringBuilder class was introduced with JDK 5.0. Essentially, a StringBuffer is a thread-safe version of StringBuilder. If you are only adding/removing characters from a single-thread, the StringBuilder implementation will be faster. If you are using multiple threads to add and remove characters, use StringBuffer.
