Can anyone help me understand the difference between these expressions:

x = x.replaceAll("\\s", "");

x = x.replaceAll("\\s+", "");

Basically, \\s helps us to match for the single whitespace character whereas, \\s+ helps us to match the sequence of more than one whitespace character. It would be more efficient if you use \\s+.

I hope this will help.
