Java programming Exercises: Replace all the vowels in a given string with a specified character

Java Regular Expression: Exercise-16 with Solution

Write a Java program to replace all the vowels in a given string with a specified character.

Sample Solution-1:

Java Code:

public class test { 
   public static void main(String[] args) {	   
	    String text = "LOWERED";
		System.out.println("Original string: "+text);
		System.out.println("After replacing vowel(s) with specified Character: "+validate(text, '#'));
		text = "Java";
		System.out.println("\nOriginal string: "+text);
		System.out.println("After replacing vowel(s) with specified Character: "+validate(text, '*'));
		text = "MID-CENTRALIZED";
		System.out.println("\nOriginal string: "+text);
		System.out.println("After replacing vowel(s) with specified Character: "+validate(text, '^'));
		text = "C++";
		System.out.println("\nOriginal string: "+text);
		System.out.println("After replacing vowel(s) with specified Character: "+validate(text, '@'));
        }

   public static String validate(String text, char chr) {
	   return text.replaceAll("[aeiouAEIOU]", "" + chr);
  }
}

Sample Output:

Original string: LOWERED
After replacing vowel(s) with specified Character: L#W#R#D

Original string: Java
After replacing vowel(s) with specified Character: J*v*

Original string: MID-CENTRALIZED
After replacing vowel(s) with specified Character: M^D-C^NTR^L^Z^D

Original string: C++
After replacing vowel(s) with specified Character: C++

   public static void main(String[] args) {	   
	    String text = "LOWERED";
		System.out.println("Original string: "+text);
		System.out.println("After replacing vowel(s) with specified Character: "+validate(text, '#'));
		text = "Java";
		System.out.println("\nOriginal string: "+text);
		System.out.println("After replacing vowel(s) with specified Character: "+validate(text, '*'));
		text = "MID-CENTRALIZED";
		System.out.println("\nOriginal string: "+text);
		System.out.println("After replacing vowel(s) with specified Character: "+validate(text, '^'));
		text = "C++";
		System.out.println("\nOriginal string: "+text);
		System.out.println("After replacing vowel(s) with specified Character: "+validate(text, '@'));
        }

   public static String validate(String text, char chr) {
	   return text.replaceAll( "(?i)[aeiou]", String.valueOf(chr));
  }
}

Sample Output:

Original string: LOWERED
After replacing vowel(s) with specified Character: L#W#R#D

Original string: Java
After replacing vowel(s) with specified Character: J*v*

Original string: MID-CENTRALIZED
After replacing vowel(s) with specified Character: M^D-C^NTR^L^Z^D

Original string: C++
After replacing vowel(s) with specified Character: C++

Java: Tips of the Day

Split Java String by New Line

String lines[] = string.split("\\r?\\n");

There's only really two newlines (UNIX and Windows) that you need to worry about.
