How do I reverse a string, words or sentences?

package org.kodejava.example.commons.lang;

import org.apache.commons.lang.StringUtils;

public class StringReverseDemo {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        // We have an original string here that we'll need to reverse.
        String words = "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog";

        // Using StringUtils.reverse we can reverse the string letter by letter.
        String reversed = StringUtils.reverse(words);

        // Now we want to reverse per word, we can use
        // StringUtils.reverseDelimited() method to do this.
        String delimitedReverse = StringUtils.reverseDelimited(words, ' ');

        // Print out the result
        System.out.println("Original: " + words);
        System.out.println("Reversed: " + reversed);
        System.out.println("Delimited Reverse: " + delimitedReverse);
    }
}

Here is the result:

Original: The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog
Reversed: god yzal eht revo spmuj xof nworb kciuq ehT
Delimited Reverse: dog lazy the over jumps fox brown quick The
