String matches

I have a arraylist which contains the nodes of an xml.
One typical node is "<event id="...">".
How do i find this entry using the ListIterator.
I tried :
ListIterator steitr=......;
String elementvalue=(String)setitr.previous();

if((elementvalue.matches("<event\\s*id")) && (.....))


How do I use matches(regex) to find this entry.
With a little knowledge, a cast iron skillet is non-stick and lasts a lifetime.
