Join Two Lists in Kotlin

In Kotlin, there are multiple ways to join lists.

1. Using Plus Operator

A simple solution to join two lists is with the plus operator.

import java.util.Arrays

fun <T> merge(first: List<T>, second: List<T>): List<T> {
    return first + second
}
 
fun main() {
    val fruits = listOf("Apple", "Banana")
    val vegetables = listOf("Tomato", "Cucumber")
 
    var list: List<String>? = merge(fruits, vegetables)
 
    println(list)       
}

Output

[Apple, Banana, Tomato, Cucumber]


2. Using plus() function

Another way we can join lists is to use plus() function.

import java.util.Arrays

fun <T> merge(first: List<T>, second: List<T>): List<T> {
    return first.plus(second)
}
 
fun main() {
    val fruits = listOf("Apple", "Banana")
    val vegetables = listOf("Tomato", "Cucumber")
 
    var list: List<String>? = merge(fruits, vegetables)
 
    println(list)       
}

Output

[Apple, Banana, Tomato, Cucumber]


3. Using addAll() function

Another way we can join lists is to use addAll() function.

import java.util.Arrays

fun <T> merge(first: List<T>, second: List<T>): List<T> {
    val list: MutableList<T> = ArrayList()
    list.addAll(first)
    list.addAll(second)
    return list
}
 
fun main() {
    val fruits = listOf("Apple", "Banana")
    val vegetables = listOf("Tomato", "Cucumber")
 
    var list: List<String>? = merge(fruits, vegetables)
 
    println(list)
