a,b,c are variables.
And I want to concatenate them. So I have two related questions:

1- If I do the following, is it gonna process "\n" as a new line character or literally \n? If literally \n, then how can I make it processed as new line character?

2- So I have variable a in my hand. And I want to add b and c as a prefix to a not a suffix. I mean in the beginning of what is in a now. Is this gonna work? If not how can I make it?

a = b + "\n" + c + a;

That newline will be interpreted as an escape sequence so you'll actually get a newline in the String. Print it out and you'll see

1. It will be treated as a new line char. Generally better to use System.getProperty("line.separator") as it will be line seperator for the platform you are running on
2. you can change the order of concatentation however you like
