  • Last Updated : 02 Feb, 2021

Java String Class strip() method returns a string that provides a string with all leading and trailing white spaces removed. This method is similar to the String.trim() method. There are basically 3 methods by which we can remove white spaces in a different manner.

strip() Method: It returns a string, with all leading and trailing white space removed

Syntax:

String strippedString = string.strip()

stripLeading() Method: It returns a string, with all leading white space removed.

Syntax:



String leadingStripString = string.stripLeading()

stripTrailing() Method: It returns a string, with all trailing white space removed.

Syntax:

String trailedStripString = string.stripTrailing()

Example:

Java




// Java Program to demonstrate the use of the strip()
// method,stripLeading() method,stripTrailing() method
  
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        String str
            = "        Geeks For Geeks Internship    !   ";
  
        // removing leading and
        // trailing white spaces
        System.out.println(str.strip());
  
        // removing leading white spaces
        System.out.println(str.stripLeading());
  
        // removing trailing white spaces
        System.out.println(str.stripTrailing());
    }
}
