Assuming you're talking about the String methods, did you read the javadoc for those methods. The answer is in there.

I am assuming that you are referring to the methods of the java.lang.String class?

If so, then the javadoc is a good place to start here.... basically, the two methods do the same thing. In fact, I believe subSequence() calls subString(). And the reason is also explained in the JavaDoc.

[EDIT] beaten to the answer by only 20 seconds...

One is a method of String; the other a method of CharSequence (which is newer) and, since String implements CharSequence (at least since Java 1.4), it must implement subSequence() and, as has already been mentioned, its implementation is identical to substring().
