Count number of White Spaces in the String : Java Program Code

In this program we will calculate the number of spaces or white spaces in the string .
For example , if the string is
"Alive is awesome"
then the answer is 2 .

This is quite useful when some one takes the input from the user such as first name , last name or any other input in string format .

Here we are passing String to the spacecount() function which return the int value that is the number of white spaces  in the string .

            char ch=s.charAt(i);
            if(ch==' ')
        return c;
    public static void main (String args[])
        res=SpaceCount.spacecount("i am adult ");
