How to Reverse Word in Java Program

How to Reverse Word in Java.

Let's see, how to Reverse Words in Java using Iteration and Recursion. We will Reverse a Word using Recursion and using loop. For reversing a word we should not use any inbuilt methods.

Input:      "ReverseWord"
Output:   "droWesreveR"

Input:      "HELLO"
Output:   "OLLEH"

Input:      "123abc"
Output:   "cba321"


1. Reverse a Word using Loop

STEP 1: Initialize i = word.length()-1 as we need to read the characters of Word from back.
STEP 2: Iterate till i>=0, that is to read all the characters of array till first character present at index 0.
STEP 3: Decrement i-- at each iteration as we are printing backwards.
STEP 4: Using word.charAt(i), method, pick each character of Word and Print it.
public class ReverseWordInJava {
 public static void main(String[] args) {  
 public static void reverseWord(String str){
  for (int i = str.length()-1; i >= 0; i--) {

2. Reverse a Word using Recursion

In this approach, we will Reverse a Word using recursion. 

In each Recursive step, we will pick character at index 0 and pass the remaining word to next Recursive call.
Repeat until word length is not equal to 0. When word length is == 0, Return word.

public class ReverseWordInJava {
 public static void main(String[] args) {  

 public static String reverseWord(String str) {     
  if (str.length() == 0) 
   return str;

  return reverseWord(str.substring(1)) + str.charAt(0);
