Java Basic Exercises: Replace a string 'python' with 'java' and 'java' with 'python' in a given string.

Sample Solution:

Java Code:

 import java.io.IOException;
import java.io.BufferedReader;
import java.io.InputStreamReader;
class Main {
    public static void main(String[] args) throws IOException {
        BufferedReader br = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(System.in));
        System.out.println("Input the string:");
        String str1 = br.readLine();
        str1 = str1.replaceAll("java", "py_thon");
        str1 = str1.replaceAll("python", "java");
        str1 = str1.replaceAll("py_thon", "python");
        System.out.println("New string:");

Sample Output:

Input the string:
python is more popular than java
New string:
java is more popular than python


Flowchart: Replace a string 'python' with 'java' and 'java' with 'python' in a given string.

Java: Anagrams

Generates all anagrams of a string.

public static List<String> anagrams(String input) {
    if (input.length() <= 2) {
        return input.length() == 2
                ? Arrays.asList(input, input.substring(1) + input.substring(0, 1))
                : Collections.singletonList(input);
    return IntStream.range(0, input.length())
            .mapToObj(i -> new SimpleEntry<>(i, input.substring(i, i + 1)))
            .flatMap(entry ->
                    anagrams(input.substring(0, entry.getKey()) + input.substring(entry.getKey() + 1))
                            .map(s -> entry.getValue() + s))
