	 * This method is used to show the use of ensureCapacity() method.
	 * @author codesjava
	public void ensureCapacityTest(){
		//default capacity.
		sb.append("Hello ");
		//current capacity 16.
		//current capacity (16*2)+2=34 i.e (oldcapacity*2)+2.  
		//now no change in capacity because 
                //minimum is already set to 34. 
		//now (34*2)+2 = 70 as 50 is greater than 34.
public class StringBufferEnsureCapacityExample {
	public static void main(String args[]){
		//creating TestStringBuffer object
		TestStringBuffer obj = new TestStringBuffer();
		//method call
