Now, in this String of you want to replace “is” (all occurrences) with String “are”, then you can use replaceAll() method.

After replacement, the final String will be as below:

public class TestExample {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        String str = "This is a test program";
        String newStr = str.replaceAll("is", " hello "); 
        System.out.println("String str after replacement = "+newStr);
