Given two string arrays and we have to find common strings (elements) using java program.

Example:

    Example:
    Input:
    Array 1 elements: C, C++, C#, JAVA, SQL, ORACLE
    Array 2 elements: MySQL, SQL, Android, ORACLE, PostgreSQL, DB2, JAVA 
    Output:
    Common elements: JAVA, ORACLE, SQL

Program to find common strings in two string arrays in java

import java.util.Arrays;
import java.util.HashSet;

public class ExArrayCommon
{
	public static void main(String[] args) 
	{
		// enter string value.
		String[] array1 = {"C", "C++", "C#", "JAVA", "SQL", "ORACLE"};

		String[] array2 = {"MySQL", "SQL", "Android", "ORACLE", "PostgreSQL", "DB2", "JAVA"};

		// print both the string.
		System.out.println("Array1 : "+Arrays.toString(array1));
		System.out.println("Array2 : "+Arrays.toString(array2));

		HashSet<String> set = new HashSet<String>();

		for (int i = 0; i < array1.length; i++)
		{
			for (int j = 0; j < array2.length; j++)
			{
				if(array1[i].equals(array2[j]))
				{
					set.add(array1[i]);
				}
			}
		}
		// return common elements.
		System.out.println("Common element : "+(set));   
	}
}

Output

    Array1 : [C, C++, C#, JAVA, SQL, ORACLE]
    Array2 : [MySQL, SQL, Android, ORACLE, PostgreSQL, DB2, JAVA]
    Common element : [JAVA, ORACLE, SQL]
