Let us change our traditional attitude to the construction of programs. Instead of imagining that our main task is to instruct a computer what to to, let us concentrate rather on explaining to human beings what we want a computer to do. Donald Knuth

When I declared stack as private static one of my conditions failed. String bsy1 = "{()){}"; // Gave false String bsy2 = "{(){}}"; // Gave True String bsy3 = "{()[}}"; // Gave false String bsy4 = "{(){}}"; // Gave false, which is incorrect. So I moved the line private static Stack < Character > stack = new Stack < Character >(); into isBalanced method as Stack stack = new Stack(); which gave me expected result.
