I need a little bit of help with my coding below.

Whenever I try to run the second application it gives me

A man a plan a canal PanamaPalindromefalse
Hurray for HollywoodPalindromefalse
Mr Owl ate my metal wormPalindromefalse
Was it a car or a cat I sawPalindromefalse
Can I attain a CPalindromefalse

That's not what I want or am looking for, I am looking for ****

mom is a palindrome
dad is a palindrome
sister is not a palindrome
nevermind is not a palindrome

etc. etc.

Here's my code below to elaborate more on the issue.

Service class

    public class Palindrome

       private String pal;

        public Palindrome()
           pal = " ";

        public Palindrome(String newPal)

            pal = newPal.toUpperCase();


        public void setPal(String initPalin)
           pal = initPalin.toUpperCase();


        public String getPal()
           return pal;

        public boolean isPalindrome()
           int left = 0;
            int right = pal.length() -1;


              if (pal.charAt(left) != pal.charAt(right))
                     return false;

               return true;

         public String toString()

        return "Palindrome" + isPalindrome();

Client class ONE

import java.util.Scanner;

public class Palindromeclient
  public static void main(String[]args)

      boolean palin = false;

      Scanner scan = new Scanner(System.in);

      System.out.println("Enter statement: ");
      String userinput = scan.nextLine();

      Palindrome statement = new Palindrome(userinput);

      palin = statement.isPalindrome();

      System.out.println(userinput + " is a palindrome");
      System.out.println(userinput + " is not a palindrome");



Client Class Two

import java.util.Scanner;
import java.io.*;
public class Palindromeclient2
   Scanner scan = new Scanner(System.in);

   public static void main(String[] args)throws FileNotFoundException

   public static void Palindromeclient2() throws FileNotFoundException
       Palindrome statement = new Palindrome();

       File thefile = new File("myfile.dat");
        Scanner scan = new Scanner(thefile);

        while (scan.hasNext())
           String userinput = scan.nextLine();
            System.out.println(userinput + statement.toString());


Palindrome Class:

A palindrome is a word, phrase, or sentence that is symmetrical: that is, it is spelled the same forward and backward. Examples are “otto”, “mom”, and “Able was I ere I saw Elba”.
The Palindrome class should define a single String field. The class should define a isPalindrome method which returns true when the String is a Palindrome and false otherwise. Also define a method named toString which returns the String data member along with the result of the isPalindrome method is a readable format. For example,

Mom is a palindrome
Dad is a palindrome
Sister is not a palindrome

The isPalindrome method should conduct case-insensitive tests and spaces within the string should be ignored. Puncuation should not be entered.

Client Application1:
This client application is responsible for retrieving a word, phrase, or sentence from the user, and reporting whether or not the input given is a palindrome. The client should allow the user to test any number of strings.

Client Application2:
This client application is responsible for retrieving a filename from the user, and reporting whether each line of the input file is a palindrome or not. To test your application, create a text file containing multiple test cases (one per line.) Save the file in the same folder as the application class. Use a plain text editor such as Notepad or jGrasp to create the file. (In jGrasp, using the menu, select File | New | Other | Plain Text. After entering your test cases, select File | Save As and save with a file extension of .dat.) Below is an example text file:

A man a plan a canal Panama
Hurray for Hollywood
Mr Owl ate my metal worm
Was it a car or a cat I saw
Can I attain a C

Are you looking for a different formatting and contents for the program's output?
Instead of this: momPalindrometrue
you want this: Mom is a palindrome

Where is the current output generated? Find where the current output comes from and change it to output what you want to see.
