Java Program to Generate All Possible Combinations of a Given List of Numbers

«
»
This is a java program to generate and print all the permutation of the Numbers. User first enters the element in the set and then actual elements. The notion of permutation relates to the act of permuting, or rearranging, members of a set into a particular sequence or order (unlike combinations, which are selections that disregard order). For example, there are six permutations of the set {1,2,3}, namely (1,2,3), (1,3,2), (2,1,3), (2,3,1), (3,1,2), and (3,2,1).

Here is the source code of the Java Program to Generate All Possible Combinations of a Given List of Numbers. The Java program is successfully compiled and run on a Windows system. The program output is also shown below.
