Java String Programs – Programming Examples for Interviews (2021)

A quick guide to java string based interview programming questions and examples.

1. Overview

In this article, We will see what are the String programs frequently asked in the java interviews.

All may be asked in the face to face or telephonic technical rounds. Every java programmer must know all of these questions.

Some of these will be tricky but easy if you understand clearly.

2. Java String Programs

Next, Look at the java string based programs with example codes.

        String str = "java@program@to.com";
 
        String[] splitArray = str.split("@");
 
        for(String value : splitArray){
            System.out.println(value);

String str = "Code Points as Stream";
System.out.println("Input string value : "+str);
 
IntStream intStream = str.codePoints();
System.out.println("Printing each char from string as ASCII value");
 
intStream.forEach(value -> System.out.print(value+" "));

Output:

1

3
Input string value : Code Points as Stream
Printing each char from string as ASCII value
67 111 100 101 32 80 111 105 110 116 115 32 97 115 32 83 116 114 101 97 109

String str = "Digit ZERO 0 is not considered in input name. So removing all Zero's 00000000";
IntStream intStream = str.codePoints();
 
String zeroRemovedString = intStream.filter(ch -> ch != 48)
         .collect(StringBuilder::new, StringBuilder::appendCodePoint, StringBuilder::append)
         .toString();

Output:

1
Digit ZERO  is not considered in input name. So removing all Zero's

    if (s.length() == 0 || s.length() == 1)
        return true;
 
    // checking the first and last character of the string. if equals then call the
    // same function with substring from index 1 to length -1. Because substring
    // excludes the endIndex.
    // if these two values are not same then string is not Palindrome so this
    // returns false.
    if (s.charAt(0) == s.charAt(s.length() - 1))
        return isPalindrome(s.substring(1, s.length() - 1));
 
    // this statment is executed if and if only first and last character of string
    // at any time is not equal.
    return false;

String input = "This is using Collectors api methods !!!!";
 
List<Character> vowels = new ArrayList<>(Arrays.asList('a', 'e', 'i', 'o', 'u'));
input = input.toLowerCase();
 
IntStream stream = input.chars();
 
Map<Boolean, Long> finalResultMap = stream.mapToObj(ch -> (char) ch).filter(ch -> (ch >= 'a' && ch <= 'z'))
        .collect(Collectors.partitioningBy(ch -> vowels.contains(ch), Collectors.counting()));
 
System.out.println("Total count of vowels : " + finalResultMap.get(new Boolean(true)));
System.out.println("Total count of consonants : " + finalResultMap.get(new Boolean(false)));

Output:

1
2
Total count of vowels : 11
Total count of consonants : 20

String status = new String("Failure");
 
if (status.intern() != "Failure") {
    System.out.println("Valid age");
} else {
    System.out.println("Invalid age");
}

Use intern() method to get the original string from String constant pool for string contents comparision with != operator.

  int pos = chars.entrySet().stream().filter(e -> e.getValue() == 1L).findFirst().map(Map.Entry::getKey)
