If the following throws java.lang.NullPointerException
s=null;
s=s.concat("a");

How come this
("1"+null+2) does not?

And also in other places.

Am I correct in thinking this is because internally a StringBuffer is used in all cases and stringBuffer.append(null) just adds the text null.
Anyway I thought it was interesting because I was expecting a nullpointer to be thrown and it was not.
