Strings

I have written a code which reads each xml tag in each iteration. At every iteration I insert a forward slash '/' at the index of 1 for the first xml tag and compare it with the present tag entered. If both are sameit indicates the closing tag has been entered. It comes out of the loop. Intrestingly everytime I enter a forward slash, two slashes are getting inserted. I am not knowing the reason why. My code is given below.

Its because you are inserting it twice

1) System.out.println("sb1 is "+(sb1.insert(1,"/")).toString());
2) if((sb1.insert(1,'/')).toString().equals( sb3.toString ()))

so two '/' are getting inserted

gkishoreji is right

StringBuffer is mutable.  I guess you had your "Strings are immutable" head on ;-)

PS:  All points should go to gkishoreji, with no points for this, I'm just rambling...
