Java program to count the occurrences of each character

JavaObject Oriented ProgrammingProgramming

Let’s say the following is our string −

String myStr = "thisisit";

To count the occurrences, we are using HashMap. Loop through and using containsKey(0 and charAt() method, count the occurrences of each character in the above string −

HashMap <Character, Integer> hashMap = new HashMap<>();
for (int i = myStr.length() - 1; i >= 0; i--) {
   if (hashMap.containsKey(myStr.charAt(i))) {
      int count = hashMap.get(myStr.charAt(i));
      hashMap.put(myStr.charAt(i), ++count);
   } else {
         hashMap.put(myStr.charAt(i),1);
   }
}

Example

Following is the program to count the occurrences of each character −

import java.util.HashMap;
public class Demo {
   public static void main(String[] args) {
      String myStr = "thisisit";
      System.out.println("String ="+myStr);
      HashMap <Character, Integer> hashMap = new HashMap<>();
      for (int i = myStr.length() - 1; i >= 0; i--) {
         if (hashMap.containsKey(myStr.charAt(i))) {
            int count = hashMap.get(myStr.charAt(i));
            hashMap.put(myStr.charAt(i), ++count);
         } else {
            hashMap.put(myStr.charAt(i),1);
         }
      }
      System.out.println("Counting occurrences of each character = "+hashMap);
   }
}

Output

String =thisisit
Counting occurrences of each character = {s=2, t=2, h=1, i=3}
