Hi,

I have the following requirement.

I have a String that could be of the following forms.
1) /foo/{Id} where {Id} is a number
2) /foo;{SomeString} where {SomeString} is some string.

I need to give an error if the String is not of this form, otherwise i need to get "foo" and "{Id}" or "{SomeString}"

I can try to parse the String but i think Regular expressions should be used for this.

Can anyone direct me as to how regular expressions need to be used in this case.

Regards,

Rahul

If you are asking for which classes in Java support Regex- You can have a look at java.util.regex.Pattern and java.util.regex.Matcher classes.

You can take a look at the Java RegEx Turorial. It's pretty clear and helpful.
