In Java, everything written in double-quotes is considered a string and the text written in double-quotes is display as it is.

Adding double quotes to a string

To add double quotes in a string, you need to use an escape character \" (i.e., the combination of forward slash (\) and double quotation mark (")) around both sides of the string, or wherever you want to add double quotes.


Let us suppose if we have a string "Preeti" and simply it will display like this preeti and if we want to add double quotes to string (i.e. display like "preeti" ) then we will write a statement like this "\"Preeti\"".

Java code to add double quotes to a string

public class AddQuotesToString {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        // Create a string named str1 with value Java 
        // and display like this Java.
        String str1 = "Java";
        // Create a string named str2 with value OOPS 
        // and display like this Java "OOPS".
        // For adding double quotes to OOPS  
        // then we need or add \" escape sequence to escape quotes 
        // around both side string.
        String str2 = " \" OOPS \" ";
        System.out.println("Display String without quotes " + " " + str1);
        System.out.println("Display String with quotes " + " " + str2);
