How to use string expression in IF condition Apex

Hi there,
I am stuck in my program, Actually I want to use String expression into the IF statement condition.
String expression1 = 'Annual_Rev__c != 0 && Status__c == "Closed"';
if(expression1 ){
System.debug('It Worked...!');

Is there any solution for this, Please let me know your thoughts on this.

Hi Anime,

What is the value you are trying to keep in expression1?

below is the if condition check for string.
If(!IsEmpty(expression1 ))

Hi Anime Lover,

As I can see you are passing string value in if condition, but If-else only accepts boolean value.
So, please try the given code below.
String expression1 = 'Annual_Rev__c != 0 && Status__c == "Closed"';

I hope you find the above solution helpful. If it does, please mark it as Best Answer to help others too.

Thanks and Regards,

for(Account acc : [select Id,name,Industry from Account where Id ='0012i00000cPzwg']){
    String condition = 'acc.Industry == \'Energy\'';
    System.debug('-> '+Boolean.valueOf(condition));

I have set above account Industry value to Energy but I am always getting FALSE value to my debug state ment

Hi  Ankaiah  
usually, we use any Boolean expression in the if(Condition)  like If(Acc.Industry == 'Software') but can we put the condition into the string variable and use that variable to IF() condition like

String expression1 = 'Acc.Industry == 'Software';
