There is a method that has some conditional logic and returns an empty String '' (no space) in some cases. Which method is more effective/faster to use in this case: String.isEmpty() or String.isBlank()?
String.isEmpty is marginally faster (~0.00219ms vs ~0.00206ms, about 6%). This is such a trivially small amount that there's no reason to worry about which one you use from a performance perspective.
Practically speaking, you should generally use
String.isBlank if you expect potentially whitespace strings (e.g. from user input that may be all whitespace), and
String.isEmpty when checking fields from the database, which will never contain a string of just whitespace.
Faster here is very broad to classify, as you will need lot of considerations to test that out. It depends on what is your use case and accordingly which method fits in best.
String.isEmpty() will be better. Assuming that you are not expecting strings containing just whitespace returning a
true value. If you want it to also treat strings containing whitespace as empty use
The difference between the two is very slight but the docs specify what will be returned depending on input.
