How to reverse a string using lambda expression in Java?

Java 8Object Oriented ProgrammingProgramming

A String is an object that represents a sequence of characters and immutable in Java. We can reverse a string entered by the user using the charAt() method of String class to extract characters from the string and append them in reverse order to reverse the entered string.

In the below example, we need to reverse a string using lambda expression with the help of the Scanner class.


import java.util.Scanner;

interface StringFunc {
   String func(String n);
public class StringFuncLambdaTest {
   public static void main(String args[]) {
      Scanner sc = new Scanner(;
      StringFunc reverse = (str) -> {   // lambda expression
         String result = "";
         for(int i = str.length()-1; i >= 0; i--)
            result += str.charAt(i);
         return result;
      System.out.println("Lambda reversed is: " + reverse.func("Lambda Expression"));
      System.out.println("Enter a word to reverse a String:");
      String word = sc.nextLine();
      System.out.println(word +" in reversed form - " + reverse.func(word));
