StringBuffer insert() in Java

The StringBuffer.insert() method inserts the string representation of given data type at given position in a StringBuffer.

Syntax:

 str.insert(int position,  char x);
 str.insert(int position,  boolean x);
 str.insert(int position,  char[] x);
 str.insert(int position, float x);
 str.insert(int position, double x);
 str.insert(int position, long x);
 str.insert(int position, int x);

position is the index in string where
we need to insert.

Return:

This method returns a reference to this object.

Exception:

The position argument must be greater
than or equal to 0, and less than 
or equal to the length of this string.
