Java Program to Print Hollow Mirrored Rhombus Star Pattern

Write a Java Program to print the hollow mirrored rhombus star pattern using for loop. This Java hollow mirrored rhombus pattern example uses multiple if-else statements and nested for loops to iterate and print the hollow mirrored rhombus.

package ShapePrograms;

import java.util.Scanner;

public class HollowMirroredRhombus1 {
	private static Scanner sc;
	
	public static void main(String[] args) {
		sc = new Scanner(System.in);
		
		System.out.print("Enter Hollow Mirrored Rhombus Pattern Rows = ");
		int rows = sc.nextInt();
		
		System.out.println("Printing Hollow Mirrored Rhombus Star Pattern");
		
		for (int i = 1 ; i <= rows; i++ ) 
		{
			for (int j = i ; j > 0; j-- ) 
			{
				System.out.print(" ");
			}
			if (i == 1 || i == rows) 
			{
				for (int k = 1 ; k <= rows; k++ ) 
				{
					System.out.print("* ");
				}		
			}
			else
			{
				for (int k = 1 ; k <= rows; k++ ) 
				{
					if (k == 1 || k == rows) {
						System.out.print("* ");
					}
					else {
						System.out.print("  ");
					}
				}
			}
			System.out.println();
		}
	}
}

Although the above approach is correct, we simplified the Java hollow mirrored rhombus code by removing the extra if-else statements.

package ShapePrograms;

import java.util.Scanner;

public class HollowMirroredRhombus2 {
	private static Scanner sc;
	
	public static void main(String[] args) {
		sc = new Scanner(System.in);
		
		System.out.print("Enter Hollow Mirrored Rhombus Pattern Rows = ");
		int rows = sc.nextInt();
		
		System.out.println("Printing Hollow Mirrored Rhombus Star Pattern");
		
		for (int i = 1 ; i <= rows; i++ ) 
		{
			for (int j = 1 ; j < i; j++ ) 
			{
				System.out.print(" ");
			}
			
			for (int k = 1 ; k <= rows; k++ ) 
			{
				if (i == 1 || i == rows || k == 1 || k == rows) {
					System.out.print("* ");
				}
				else {
					System.out.print("  ");
				}
			}
			System.out.println();
		}
	}
}
Java Program to Print Hollow Mirrored Rhombus Star Pattern 1

In this Java hollow mirrored rhombus star pattern program, we replaced the for loops with while loops.

package ShapePrograms;

import java.util.Scanner;

public class HollowMirroredRhombus3 {
	private static Scanner sc;
	
	public static void main(String[] args) {
		sc = new Scanner(System.in);
		
		int i = 1, j, k;
		System.out.print("Enter Hollow Mirrored Rhombus Pattern Rows = ");
		int rows = sc.nextInt();
		
		System.out.println("Printing Hollow Mirrored Rhombus Star Pattern");
		
		while ( i <= rows) 
		{
			j = 1 ;
			while (j < i ) 
			{
				System.out.print(" ");
				j++;
			}
			k = 1 ;
			while( k <= rows ) 
			{
				if (i == 1 || i == rows || k == 1 || k == rows) {
					System.out.print("* ");
				}
				else {
					System.out.print("  ");
				}
				k++;
			}
			System.out.println();
			i++ ;
		}
	}
}

In this Java example, the HollowMirroredRhombusPat function prints the hollow mirrored rhombus pattern of a given symbol.

package ShapePrograms;

import java.util.Scanner;

public class HollowMirroredRhombus5 {
	private static Scanner sc;
	
	public static void main(String[] args) {
		sc = new Scanner(System.in);
		
		System.out.print("Enter Hollow Mirrored Rhombus Pattern Rows = ");
		int rows = sc.nextInt();
		
		System.out.print("Enter Character for Mirrored Hollow Rhombus = ");
		char ch = sc.next().charAt(0);
		
		System.out.println("Printing Hollow Mirrored Rhombus Star Pattern");
		HollowMirroredRhombusPat(rows, ch);
	}
	
	public static void HollowMirroredRhombusPat(int rows, char ch) {
		for (int i = 1 ; i <= rows; i++ ) 
		{
			for (int j = 1 ; j < i; j++ ) 
			{
				System.out.print(" ");
			}
			
			for (int k = 1 ; k <= rows; k++ ) 
			{
				if (i == 1 || i == rows || k == 1 || k == rows) {
					System.out.print(ch + " ");
				}
				else {
					System.out.print("  ");
				}
			}
			System.out.println();
		}
	}
