Java Program to Print Plus Star Pattern

Write a Java Program to print plus pattern of stars using for loop. This Java plus star example use if else nested inside a for loop to iterate the rows.

package ShapePrograms;

import java.util.Scanner;

public class PlusPattern1 {
	private static Scanner sc;
	
	public static void main(String[] args) {
		sc = new Scanner(System.in);
		
		System.out.print("Please Enter Plus Pattern Rows = ");
		int rows = sc.nextInt();
		
		System.out.println("Printing Plus Pattern of Stars");
		
		for (int i = 1 ; i <= rows * 2 - 1; i++ ) 
		{
			if (i != rows) 
			{
				for (int j = 1 ; j <= rows; j++ ) 
				{
					if(j == rows) {
						System.out.print("*");
					}
					System.out.print(" ");
				}
			}
			else 
			{	
				for (int k = 1 ; k <= rows * 2 - 1; k++ ) 
				{
					System.out.print("*");
				}
			}
			System.out.println();
		}
	}
}
Java Program to Print Plus Star Pattern 1

In this Java Plus pattern of stars program, we replaced the for loop with a while loop.

package ShapePrograms;

import java.util.Scanner;

public class PlusPattern2 {
	private static Scanner sc;
	
	public static void main(String[] args) {
		sc = new Scanner(System.in);
		
		System.out.print("Please Enter Plus Pattern Rows = ");
		int rows = sc.nextInt();
		
		System.out.println("Printing Plus Pattern of Stars");
		int i = 1 ;
		while( i <= rows * 2 - 1 ) 
		{
			if (i != rows) 
			{
				int j = 1 ;
				while(j <= rows) 
				{
					if(j == rows) {
						System.out.print("*");
					}
					System.out.print(" ");
					j++;
				}
			}
			else 
			{
				int k = 1;
				while(k <= rows * 2 - 1 ) 
				{
					System.out.print("*");
					k++;
				}
			}
			System.out.println();
			i++;
		}
	}
}

In this Java example, the plusPattern function prints the Plus pattern of a given symbol.

package ShapePrograms;

import java.util.Scanner;

public class PlusPattern4 {
	private static Scanner sc;
	
	public static void main(String[] args) {
		sc = new Scanner(System.in);
		
		System.out.print("Please Enter Plus Pattern Rows = ");
		int rows = sc.nextInt();
		
		System.out.print("Enter Character for Plus Pattern = ");
		char ch = sc.next().charAt(0);
		
		System.out.println("Printing Plus Pattern of Stars");
		plusPattern(rows, ch);	
	}
	
	public static void plusPattern(int rows, char ch) {
		for (int i = 1 ; i <= rows * 2 - 1; i++ ) 
		{
			if (i != rows) 
			{
				for (int j = 1 ; j <= rows; j++ )

					System.out.print(" ");
				}
			}
			else
