Write a Java Program to get all the permutation of a string

Java program to get the all permutation of a string :

In this tutorial, we will learn how to print all the permutation of a string . We are going to use recursive approach to print all the permutations

Java Program :

import java.util.Scanner;

public class Main {
     * Utility function to print
    private static void println(String str) {

    private static void print(String str) {

    public static String swapCharacters(String string, int i, int j)
        char tempCharacter;
        char[] charArray = string.toCharArray();
        tempCharacter = charArray[i] ;
        charArray[i] = charArray[j];
        charArray[j] = tempCharacter;

        return String.valueOf(charArray);

    private static void findPermutation(String inputString,int leftIndex,int sizeOfString){

        if(leftIndex == sizeOfString){
            print(inputString+" ");
            for(int i = leftIndex;i<sizeOfString;i++){
                inputString = swapCharacters(inputString,leftIndex,i);
                inputString = swapCharacters(inputString,leftIndex,i);

    public static void main(String[] args) throws java.lang.Exception {

        String userInputString ;
        Scanner scanner = new Scanner(System.in);

        println("Enter a string : ");
        userInputString = scanner.next();



Sample Output:

Enter a string : 
abc acb bac bca cba cab 

Enter a string : 
abcd abdc acbd acdb adcb adbc bacd badc bcad bcda bdca bdac cbad cbda cabd cadb cdab cdba dbca dbac dcba dcab dacb dabc
