Reverse a word or string using Stack data structure.


This example uses stack operations to reverse a word (string). First we push each character to the stack, then we will pop each char from the stack.


package com.java2novice.ds.stack;

public class MyWordReverse {

	public String reverseWord(String word){
		
		StringBuilder sb = new StringBuilder();
		int size = word.length();
		StackImpl stack = new StackImpl(size);
		for(int i=0;i<size;i++){
			stack.push(word.charAt(i));
		}
		while(!stack.isStackEmpty()){
			sb.append(stack.pop());
		}
		return sb.toString();
	}
	
	public static void main(String a[]){
		MyWordReverse mwr = new MyWordReverse();
		System.out.println("Java2Novice == "+mwr.reverseWord("Java2Novice"));
		System.out.println("Java == "+mwr.reverseWord("Java"));
		System.out.println("program == "+mwr.reverseWord("program"));
	}
}

class StackImpl {

	private int stackSize;
	private char[] stackArr;
	private int top;

	/**
	 * constructor to create stack with size
	 * @param size
	 */
	public StackImpl(int size) {
		this.stackSize = size;
		this.stackArr = new char[stackSize];
		this.top = -1;
	}

	/**
	 * This method adds new entry to the top 
	 * of the stack
	 * @param entry
	 * @throws Exception 
	 */
	public void push(char entry) {
		this.stackArr[++top] = entry;
	}

	/**
	 * This method removes an entry from the 
	 * top of the stack.
	 * @return
	 * @throws Exception 
	 */
	public char pop() {
		char entry = this.stackArr[top--];
		return entry;
	}
	
	/**
	 * This method returns top of the stack
	 * without removing it.
	 * @return
	 */
	public char peek() {
		return stackArr[top];
	}

	/**
	 * This method returns true if the stack is 
	 * empty
	 * @return
	 */
	public boolean isStackEmpty() {
		return (top == -1);
	}

	/**
	 * This method returns true if the stack is full
	 * @return
	 */
	public boolean isStackFull() {
		return (top == stackSize - 1);
	}
}

Transient and Volatile Modifiers
Transient: The transient modifier applies to variables only and it is not stored as part of its object's Persistent state. Transient variables are not serialized.

Volatile: Volatile modifier applies to variables only and it tells the compiler that the variable modified by volatile can be changed unexpectedly by other parts of the program.
