StringBuffer class provides a method reverse() to reverse a string. This is the fastest and most efficient way to reverse a string.

  1. Push each character onto a stack, then pop em back off.

    Stack reverse = new Stack();

    String testString = “I love programming in Java”;
    char[] charArray = testString.toCharArray();
    for(char c:charArray){

    String reversed = “”;
    reversed += (reverse.pop());
