|Regular Expression Test Applet
Fall 2002, David Matuszek
The point of this applet is to provide a convenient means of testing regular expressions before embedding them in a Java program. The buttons represent calls to the Java methods with the same name.
The applet executes (approximately) the following code:
pattern = Pattern.compile(Contents of the Pattern: field); matcher = pattern.matcher(Contents of the String: field); matcher.Whatever_method_you_clicked(); Display results;
In Java: field shows how you would have to write the regular
expression as a Java literal string. You cannot type into this area, but you
can copy from it and paste the literal string into your Java programs.
For successful matches, the
Results: area will show what values
you will get if you call the methods
For those who are interested, here's the source code. Please inform me of any bugs you find.
