Is it possible to overload operators in Java?
It is not allowed by language design. Java is designed to be maximally readable and explicit.

Operator overloading isn't possible because Gosling said so. No other reason, it's his PERSONAL CHOICE. So yes, Java users, we have to suffer without them because some guy said so.

"+" is overloaded. It is responsible for string concatenation and arithmetic addition.
