Hello Sir!!!

Hello Sir!!!
You cannot continue a string in two lines in java. There is no line continution character in java. You can already write a multiline statement.But, you cannot break a string in just two lines using backslash. So the following line is invalid
String str = "first line "
" second line" :
You cannot use backslash as string continution character in java. You have to write the code as
String str = "first line " +
"second line" ;
String str = "first line second line" ;

Java is not C or C++. So don't compare everything in C , C++ with Java. Just learn the rules of Java and apply them only when you are working in java and same goes for C/C++ .
