[JAVA] I want to simply write a repeating string

def repeat(str, n):
    return str * n 

If you want to generate a new string that repeats the contents of the string n times, you can write it in Python as in the example above. In other words, the * operator has the function of repeating a character string, but when it comes to realizing the same thing in Java, I think that the following methods are often defined (null check etc. abridgement).

public static String repeat(String str, int n) {
  var sb = new StringBuilder();
  while(n-- > 0) sb.append(str);
  return sb.toString();

It's true that this is fine, but it's a shame that you can write in one line in Python but not in Java (mystery). So I often think about how to write string repetitions simply in Java, but the first thing I personally think of is to use Stream.

public static String repeat(String str, int n) {
  return IntStream.range(0, n).mapToObj(i -> str).collect(Collectors.joining(""));

It's certainly one line, but I get the impression that it's written in a slightly tricky way to make it one line. In order to make it simpler, I came up with the following method while researching various things.

public static String repeat(String str, int n) {
  return String.join("", Collections.nCopies(n, str));

It's shorter and simpler. I don't feel like doing tricky things to make it shorter. Since Collections.nCopies generates a list, I would like to actively use it while paying attention to that.

It's not good to use Apache Commons Lang's StringUtils.repeat (´ ・ ω ・ `)
