    this is about character in a string and not whole string. For ex: “`Character.isDigit(“hello1world”.charAt(5))“` returns true

  • Abdul Shameer

    It could be easy to do as follows:

    public boolean isStringDigit(String str){
    }catch(NumberFormatException ne){
    System.out.println("In NFE ");return false;
    return true;
