how we write apex programme to check string is palindrome or not ? please solve my problem

Hello Ritik

You need to reverse string and check if both are same. 

In apex you have Reverse function for it 
String str = 'Arvind';
String revStr = str.reverse();
system.debug('Reversed string value is ' + revStr);
if (str== revStr ) 
{  system.debug('String is Palindrom :'+revStr ); 
system.debug('String is not Palindrom :'+revStr ); 

without function
String temp= 'Civic';
integer stringLength=0;
string revString='';
for (Integer i=temp.Length()-1;i>=0;i--) {
    system.debug('Place of char' + I + '---'+ (i+1));
    revString = revString+ temp.substring(i,i+1) ;
if (temp == revString) {
    system.debug('String is Palindrom :'+revString);
}else {
    system.debug('String is not Palindrom :'+revString);

Salesforce has a reverse() function and it makes easy to comapare strings.

1. Take the string as input parameter.
2. Take a String variable, lets say reverseString.
3. Now reverse the input string using reverse() function and assign it to reverseString variable.
4. Now check if input parameter string is equal to reverseString variable or not. If it matches then it is a palindrome if not then they are not palindrome. Please check my code below for further reference.

public class myPalindrome {
    public void palindrome(String inputString){
        String reverseString ='';
        reverseString = inputString.reverse();
            system.debug('String is Palindrome');
            system.debug('String is not Palindrome');
