Since regular expressions are now an integral part of 1.4. I would suggest you install that. You also get the benefit of all the other improvements that come with 1.4 - as well as quite a few bug fixes.

Ivor Thanks for response. I am using some applications which requires JDK1.3. I am not sure how can we handle 2 JRE's in one system each for different application. Any suggestion on it.
If your application *requires* JDk 1.3.1 (why?), you could consider two Jakarta regular expression packages: ORO: http://jakarta.apache.org/oro/index.html and Regexp: http://jakarta.apache.org/regexp/index.html The usages of them are similar to the JDK 1.4 standard package. However, if you really want to a lot with regular expression, I still recommand JDK 1.4 simply because it provide tighter integrations with a number of String functions etc.
