Java Language Join lists


Example

Following ways can be used for joining lists without modifying source list(s).

First approach. Has more lines but easy to understand

List<String> newList = new ArrayList<String>();
newList.addAll(listOne);
newList.addAll(listTwo);

Second approach. Has one less line but less readable.

List<String> newList = new ArrayList<String>(listOne);
newList.addAll(listTwo);

Third approach. Requires third party Apache commons-collections library.

ListUtils.union(listOne,listTwo);
Java SE 8

Using Streams the same can be achieved by

List<String> newList = Stream.concat(listOne.stream(), listTwo.stream()).collect(Collectors.toList());
