If you want to practice data structure and algorithm programs, you can go through data structure and algorithm interview questions.

This is 9th part of java binary tree tutorial.

In this post, we will see about program to print all paths from root to leaf in a binary tree in java.

Below diagram will show all paths from root to leaf:

#### Algorithm:

- If node is null then return 0
- put node.data in array and increment len by 1.
- If encounterd leaf node(i.e. node.left is null and node.right is null) then print array.
- Recursively visit left subtree and right subtree

**Code for recursion will be:**

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 |
// Prints all paths to leaf public static void printAllPathsToLeaf(TreeNode node, int[] path, int len) { if ( node == null ) return; // storing data in array path[len] = node.data; len++; if(node.left == null && node.right == null) { // leaf node is reached printArray(path,len); return; } printAllPathsToLeaf(node.left, path, len); printAllPathsToLeaf(node.right, path, len); } |

Lets create java program for counting number of leaf nodes:

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 40 41 42 43 44 45 46 47 48 49 50 51 52 53 54 55 56 57 58 59 60 61 62 63 64 65 66 67 68 69 70 71 72 73 74 75 76 77 78 |
package org.arpit.java2blog.binarytree; public class BinaryTreePrintAllPaths { public static class TreeNode { int data; TreeNode left; TreeNode right; TreeNode(int data) { this.data=data; } } // Prints all paths to leaf public static void printAllPathsToLeaf(TreeNode node, int[] path, int len) { if ( node == null ) return; // storing data in array path[len] = node.data; len++; if(node.left == null && node.right == null) { // leaf node is reached printArray(path,len); return; } printAllPathsToLeaf(node.left, path, len); printAllPathsToLeaf(node.right, path, len); } public static void main(String[] args) { // Creating a binary tree TreeNode rootNode=createBinaryTree(); System.out.println("Printing all paths from root to leaf :"); printAllPathsToLeaf(rootNode,new int[1000],0); } public static void printArray(int[] path,int len) { for (int i = 0; i < len; i++) { System.out.print(" "+path[i]); } System.out.println(); } public static TreeNode createBinaryTree() { TreeNode rootNode =new TreeNode(40); TreeNode node20=new TreeNode(20); TreeNode node10=new TreeNode(10); TreeNode node30=new TreeNode(30); TreeNode node60=new TreeNode(60); TreeNode node50=new TreeNode(50); TreeNode node70=new TreeNode(70); TreeNode node5=new TreeNode(5); TreeNode node55=new TreeNode(55); rootNode.left=node20; rootNode.right=node60; node20.left=node10; node20.right=node30; node60.left=node50; node60.right=node70; node10.left=node5; node50.right=node55; return rootNode; } } |

Run above program and you will get following output:

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 |
Printing all paths from root to leaf : 40 20 10 5 40 20 30 40 60 50 55 40 60 70 |

I appreciate your blog. Its really nice on java programming. Its a great tutorial for the beginners. Really liked it. Thank you for all the information.

hi

can u plz help me

actually this following part of your code is not working, giving an error

plz resolve this

•if(node.left == null && node.right == null) {

• // leaf node is reached

• printArray(path,len);

• return;

• }

•

thanks

Thanks Tanu for pointing out. I have updated the code
