Java Program to Check whether a String is a Palindrome

This is a Java Program to Check whether a String is a Palindrome.

Enter any string as input. Now we use for loops and if-else conditions along with equalsIgnoreCase() method to conclude whether the entered string is palindrome or not.

Here is the source code of the Java Program to Check whether a String is a Palindrome. The Java program is successfully compiled and run on a Windows system. The program output is also shown below.

  1. public class Palindrome
  2. {
  3.     public static void main(String args[])
  4.     {
  5.         String a, b = "";
  6.         Scanner s = new Scanner(;
  7.         System.out.print("Enter the string you want to check:");
  8.         a = s.nextLine();
  9.         int n = a.length();
  10.         for(int i = n - 1; i >= 0; i--)
  11.         {
  12.             b = b + a.charAt(i);
  13.         }
  14.         if(a.equalsIgnoreCase(b))
  15.         {
  16.             System.out.println("The string is palindrome.");
  17.         }
  18.         else
  19.         {
  20.             System.out.println("The string is not palindrome.");
  21.         }
  22.     }
  23. }
