What is Palindrome Number and String?

A palindromic number is a kind of number which remains the same even after its digit is reversed for example 121, 1551 etc are palindrome numbers because they remain the same even after you reverse their digit.

Same in the case of palindrome string, a string is said to be a palindromic string when even after reversing the character of string the original string remains same, for example, DAD is a palindromic string.

In this tutorial, you will learn how to write a java program to check if an integer or a string is a palindrome or not.

Integer Palindrome in Java

1) Check Palindrome Integer in Java Using While Loop

//Java Program Example for checking number is palindrome or not using while loop

//Import Scanner to take input from user
import java.util.Scanner;

//Main / Driver Class
public class Main
{
    //Main Function
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        //Creating an object for Scanner
        Scanner scn = new Scanner(System.in);
        //Printing a lable to give user an idea what to enter
        System.out.print("Enter an integer: ");
        //Taking entered number in variable of int type
        int num = scn.nextInt();
        //Declaring and Initilizing variables
        int digit,digitSum=0,temp;
        //Initilizing temp variable with the entered number
        temp = num;

        //Checking weather temp variable greater than 0
        while(temp > 0)
        {
            //If Condiation is true

            //Applying Modulation on temp variable
            digit = temp % 10;
            //Applying the formula to get the sum
            digitSum = (digitSum * 10) + digit;
            //Removing last digit from the number
            temp = temp/10;
        }

        //Checking if entered number is equal to the formula sum
        if(digitSum == num) {
            //If Yes, Then it is a palindrom number
            System.out.println(num+" IS A PALINDROME NUMBER");
        }else{
            //If No, Then it is not a palindrom number
            System.out.println(num+" IS A NOT PALINDROME NUMBER");
        }
    }
} 

OUTPUT :

1) Enter an integer: 121
121 IS A PALINDROME NUMBER

2) Enter an integer: 199
199 IS A NOT PALINDROME NUMBER

2) Check Palindrome Integer in Java Using For Loop

//Java Program to check whether the entered number is palindrome or not using for loop

//Import Scanner to take input from user
import java.util.Scanner;

//Main / Driver Class
public class Main
{
    //Main Function
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        //Creating an object for Scanner
        Scanner scn = new Scanner(System.in);
        //Printing a lable to give user an idea what to enter
        System.out.print("Enter an integer: ");
        //Taking entered number in variable of int type
        int num = scn.nextInt();
        //Declaring and Initilizing variables
        int digit,digitSum,temp;
        //Initilizing temp variable with the entered number
        temp = num;

        //For loop for the iteration till temp number is greater than 0
        for(digitSum = 0; temp > 0; temp /= 10){
            //Applying Modulation on temp variable
            digit = temp % 10;
            //Applying the formula to get the sum
            digitSum = (digitSum * 10) + digit;
        }
        //Checking if entered number is equal to the formula sum
        if(digitSum == num) {
            //If Yes, Then it is a palindrom number
            System.out.println(num+" IS A PALINDROME NUMBER");
        }else{
            //If No, Then it is not a palindrom number
            System.out.println(num+" IS A NOT PALINDROME NUMBER");
        }
    }
}

OUTPUT:

1) Enter an integer: 121
121 IS A PALINDROME NUMBER

2) Enter an integer: 123
123 IS A NOT PALINDROME NUMBER

//Main / Driver Class
public class Main
{
    //Main Function
    public static void main(String[] args) {

        //Printing a lable to give user an idea what to enter
        System.out.print("Enter a string: ");
        //Taking entered number in variable of int type
        String str = scn.nextLine();
        //Declaring and Initilizing a variable of String Type
        String revStr="";
        //Declaring a variable of Integer Type
        int i;
        //Get the length of string
        int strLen = str.length();
        //For loop for iteration
        //Iteration will go on till the string length variable greater than equal to 0
        for(i = strLen - 1; i >= 0; i--){
            //Adding the reverse string and charecter at of string at `i` position
            revStr = revStr + str.charAt(i);
        }
        //Check weather entered string equals to reverse string
        if(str.equals(revStr)){
            //If Yes,Then it is a palindrom string
            System.out.println(str+" IS A PALINDROME STRING");
        }else{
            //If No,Then it is not a palindrom string
            System.out.println(str+" IS A NOT PALINDROME STRING");
        }
    }
}
