Java 7 regular expressions, get list of named groups

Is there a way of getting a list of named groups in a regular expression without knowing those names ahead of time other than parsing the regular expression to look for the named capture groups? It would be very simple to do that, but I feel that I would be doing something that is already easily at hand, or should be.
