Im using RE from jakarta to validation email address.
Im now using this to validate my email addresses, based on the test its
quite OK.
Just want to check with you guys if this meets rfc822 or what am i missing.
RE r = new RE("^[a-zA-Z0-9]*[\\w\\.\\w\\-\\w\\+]*[a-zA-Z0-9]@[a-zA-Z0-9][\\w\\.\\w\\-]*[a-zA-Z0-9]\\.[a-zA-Z][a-zA-Z\\.]*[a-zA-Z]$");
if (!r.match(email)) return false;
else return true;
Or are there any codes which is better for validating email address.
thanks,

Not really a Java question, but definitely not a Servlet question.
I'll move it to the Java in General (intermediate) forum. You'll have more luck there.
Dave.
