Hi Friend,

Try the following code:

import java.util.*;

public class ConvertInfixToPrefix {
public static String[] operators = {"+","-","/","*","^"};
public ConvertInfixToPrefix() {
public String convert(String infix) {
StringBuffer sb = new StringBuffer(infix);
int index = sb.length();
String operand = "";
int steps = 0;
for (int i = 0; i < sb.length(); i++) {
for (int x = 0; x < operators.length; x++) {
int tempIndex = sb.indexOf(operators[x], i);
if (tempIndex < index && tempIndex >= 0) {
index = tempIndex;
operand = operators[x];
if (index == sb.length()) {
sb.delete(index, index + operand.length() + 1);
for (int x = index - 1; x >= 0; x--) {
if (sb.charAt(x) == '(' && steps == 0) {
sb.insert(x, operand);
} else if (sb.charAt(x) == '(') {
} else if (sb.charAt(x) == ')') {
i = index;
index = sb.length();
return sb.toString();
public static void main(String[] args) {
String infix = "((A * ( B + C ))/ D)";
ConvertInfixToPrefix ConvertInfixToPrefix = new ConvertInfixToPrefix();

Hope that it will be helpful for you.
