Java Program to locate a substring in a string

To locate a substring in a string, use the indexOf() method.

Let’s say the following is our string.

String str = "testdemo";

Find a substring ‘demo’ in a string and get the index.

int index = str.indexOf( 'demo');


 Live Demo

public class Demo {
   public static void main(String []args) {
      String str = "testdemo";
      System.out.println("String: "+str);
      int index = str.indexOf("demo");
      System.out.printf("Substring 'demo' is at index %d
", index);    } }


String: testdemo
Substring 'demo' is at index 4
