You can create StringBuilder

outside of the loop for

and reuse it.

StringBuilder sb=new StringBuilder();
for (final FieldError fieldError : result.getFieldErrors()) {
           .append(" - ")


After adding all to, sb

you can call

 String error=sb.toString()


immediately after the cycle for



Every time you want to read a database table, you use a loop. As the database tables grow, the number of iterations in the loop grows accordingly. Therefore, you want to avoid any operation in the iterations, which can be costly in terms of performance. In addition, this is one defect that you cannot find during QA or when the application is young, with a test database that has multiple records.

Avoid string concatenation, creating objects in memory, etc. in a loop.
