    Question How To Enter Name with Whitespaces in a String Variable

    Hi Team,

    I am wondering how to enter a string with White Space and Store it in a String variable.

    For example : I have created a string named "name".

    String name;

    I want to Store "Michael Jackson" in the String "name". I couldn't do it. My program Just accepts Michael and not Jackson.

    here is my code ;

    import java.util.Scanner;

    public class Stringtwo


    public static void main(String[] args)


    String name;

    Scanner scannedInfo=new Scanner(;;

    1. Please use code tags!
    2. Scanner's next() method reads the next token delimited by default delimiter which is space. To read the whole line use nextLine() method.
