Robert's observations were also bang-on. arraycopy could be used but
it's not the best choice (probably).
"Best" is a situational judgment call, as you hint.
Absolutely. So far we have seen only a tiny glimpse of an algorithm
without any information about the purpose.
Other options Robert didn't yet mention include
java.io.OutputStream, e.g., java.io.ByteArrayOutputStream
They take varying amounts of different kinds of work to do variations of
what the OP described.
Since OP was talking about concatenating String arrays we then should
probably also mention StringBuffer, StringBuilder, Writer (especially
StringWriter), CharBuffer and probably a few more. :-)
