How to Check If the String Contains Only Letters or Digits

In this post, we will write a Java program to check if the String contains only Unicode letters or digits.
Program explanation:
  • This program uses Character.isLetterOrDigit(cs.charAt(i) method to check if the character is letter or digit.
  • testIsAlphanumeric() - JUnit test case for testing this program.

import static org.junit.Assert.assertFalse;
import static org.junit.Assert.assertTrue;

import org.junit.Test;

public class IsAlphanumericExample {

 public static boolean isEmpty(final CharSequence cs) {
  return cs == null || cs.length() == 0;
 public static boolean isAlphanumeric(final CharSequence cs) {
  if (isEmpty(cs)) {
   return false;
  final int sz = cs.length();
  for (int i = 0; i < sz; i++) {
   if (!Character.isLetterOrDigit(cs.charAt(i))) {
    return false;
  return true;
 public void testIsAlphanumeric() {
  assertFalse(isAlphanumeric(" "));
  assertFalse(isAlphanumeric("ham kso"));
