» » How To Check Credit Card Or Debit Card Number In Java

The following checksum formula is widely used by banks and credit card companies to validate legal account numbers:
d0 + f(d1) + d2 + f(d3) + d4 + f(d5) + d6 + ... = 0 (mod 10) The di are the decimal digits of the account number and f(d) is the sum of the decimal digits of 2d (for example, f(7) = 5 because 2 * 7 = 14 and 1 + 4 = 5). For example, 17327 is valid because 1 + 5 + 3 + 4 + 7 = 20, which is a multiple of 10. Implement the function f and write a program to take a 10-digit integer as a command-line argument and print a valid 11-digit number with the given integer as its first
10 digits and the checksum as the last digit.

public class AccountNumberchecker {

  * @param args
 public static void main(String[] args) {
    String acc_no="17327";
    //take the card number
    int sum=0;
    //initialize sum as zero
    int a=acc_no.length();
    //check out the length
    for(int j=0;j<a;j++ )
    // this is just to build the logic as only alternate postion's element will be processed f(d1),f(d3).... 
     sum=sum calculatesum((acc_no.charAt(j))); 
     //alternate numbers will be added as it is
     sum=sum (int)(acc_no.charAt(j)-48); 
    //Checking the card status
    System.out.println("The card no is " Checksum(sum));
private static int calculatesum(char a)
  int b1=a-48;
  //Convert the character to integer
  int b=b1*2;
  //Multiplied by 2 as per logic
  if (b>10)
  //if greater than zero then add two digit 
  return implfunc(b);
   //if it is not greater than zero then return as it is
   return b; 

 private static int implfunc(int b) {
  //Add the two digits of a two digit number
 return ((b%10)+ (b/10));
 private static String Checksum(int a)
  //As per logic the mod operator will be implemented on 
  //the summation  
  if (a%10==0)
  return "Valid";
  return "invalid";

We are done!!
