Java program to check occurrence of each character in String

In order to find occurence of each character in a string we can use Map utility of Java.In Map a key could not be duplicate so make each character of string as key of Map and provide initial value corresponding to each key as 1 if this character does not inserted in map before.Now when a character repeats during insertion as key in Map increase its value by one.Continue this for each character untill all characters of string get inserted.


public class occurenceOfCharacter {
   public static void main(String[] args) {
      String str = "SSDRRRTTYYTYTR";
      HashMap <Character, Integer> hMap = new HashMap<>();
      for (int i = str.length() - 1; i > = 0; i--) {
         if (hMap.containsKey(str.charAt(i))) {
            int count = hMap.get(str.charAt(i));
            hMap.put(str.charAt(i), ++count);
         } else {


{D=1, T=4, S=2, R=4, Y=3}
