Checking for Null or Empty or White Space Only String in Java.

I am doing a small project where I need to read data from a file and store into a database. But I need to eliminate null values. How can I test whether the given string is null? Please explain with an example.

We can verify whether the given string is empty using the isEmpty() method of the String class. This method returns true only if length() is 0.

Example:

import java.lang.*;
public class StringDemo {
   public static void main(String[] args) {
      String str = "tutorialspoint";
      // prints length of string
      System.out.println("length of string = " + str.length());
      // checks if the string is empty or not
      System.out.println("is this string empty? = " + str.isEmpty());
   }
}

Output:

length of string = 14
is this string empty? = false
