Hello,

The code below works for doing pattern matching. Wondering if there would be a better way where I do not have to create separate Pattern and Matcher objects the way I have it now.
Here's the code -


Thanks!

The string class has some convenience methods for regex. Under the covers, it still does create the pattern and matcher objects, but it will make your code shorter -- for example, the string class has a matches() method that will take a regex.

Hi Henry,

Thanks for your suggestion. In the line of using Pattern do you think the following code change would be an alternative of what I wanted?
