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=......;
while(setitr.hasPrevious())
{
String elementvalue=(String)setitr.previous();
elementvalue=elementvalue.trim();

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

}


How do I use matches(regex) to find this entry.
