Removing spaces from a Java string

I have a simple java program reading a name of type string from the database.
If the string contains 2 spaces between the first name and the second name I want to remove one of these spaces. Example if the database contains the name David  Jones (2 spaces between David and Jones) I want to return David Jones(only 1 spaces between David and Jones).

Seems simple but confusing me none the less??
Thanks in advance

s = s.replaceAll("  +", " ");
