157. Using 'lastIndexOf( ) method with StringBuffer







lastIndexOf( ) method when used with StringBuffer searchers for the last occurrence of a substring in two formats and returns index value.

Example: (Search for the last occurrence of a substring from the beginning of the string till its end)

StringBuffer object1 = new StringBuffer("This is a test statement of a test person in a test environment");
object1.lastIndexOf("test"); -> It will search for the "test" substring from the beginning of the string "This is a test statement of a test person in a test environment" till the end of the string and give the index value of the last occurrence of the substring i.e. 47 in this example


Example: (Search for the last occurrence of a substring from beginning till the provided index of the string)

StringBuffer object1 = new StringBuffer("This is a test statement of a test person in a test environment");
object1.lastIndexOf("test",11); -> It will search for the "test" substring from beginning till the provided index 11 of the string "This is a test statement of a test person in a test environment"and give the index value of the last occurrence of the substring i.e. 10

Note: - IndexOf( ) and lastIndexOf( ) methods return '-1' as index value/result if the provided substring is not found in the string.


Lets implement this on Eclipse IDE:

1. Create 'lastIndexOfDemo' class  under any project as shown below:



2. Save and Run the 'lastIndexOfDemo' class
3. Observe that the output is displayed in the console as shown below:

Using shortcuts for System.out.println( ) statement in Eclipse IDE will be explained in the next post.

Hi Arun

After 157 post we should still go through the remaining post for Java?
