If both the operands are numeric, the + operator performs numeric addition.

If either operand is a string, the + operator performs string concatenation.

The execution of an expression is from left to right unless overridden by using parentheses.

Demo

public class Main {
  public static void main(String[] args) {
    String str = "abc"+ 1 + 2 ;
    System.out.println(str);/*w ww  . j a  va  2s .c o  m*/

    str = 1 + 2+ "abc" ;
    System.out.println(str);
  }
}
