public static String reverseWords( String src ) { List<String> pcs = Arrays.asList( src.split("\\s+") ); Collections.reverse( pcs ); StringBuffer result = new StringBuffer(); for( String pc : pcs ) result.append(" ").append(pc); return result.substring(1); }

    Of course the above is broken :) It appends a trailing empty space. There are two ways to fix it: 1) return result.toString().trim(); instead of return result.substring(1); 2) filter out zero-length pieces in the for loop with something like if( pc.length() == 0 )
