StringBuffer reverse method

This is an example of how to use the reverse method of StringBuffer. A StringBuffer is a thread-safe, mutable sequence of characters. A string buffer is like a String, but can be modified. At any point in time it contains some particular sequence of characters, but the length and content of the sequence can be changed through certain method calls. Reversing with a StringBuffer implies that you should:

  • Create a new StringBuffer initialized to the contents of the specified string.
  • Use reverse() API method of StringBuffer. The method causes this character sequence to be replaced by the reverse of the sequence.

Let’s take a look at the code snippet that follows:

package com.javacodegeeks.snippets.core;

public class StringBufferReverseMethod {
	public static void main(String[] args) {
		StringBuffer sb = new StringBuffer("Java Code Geeks");
		System.out.println("Original text: " + sb);
		System.out.println("Reversed text: " + sb);



Original text: Java Code Geeks
Reversed text: skeeG edoC avaJ

This was an example of how to use the reverse method of StringBuffer in Java.
