Java programming Exercises: Move all lower case letters to the front, keeping the order of all the letters of a given word

Java Regular Expression: Exercise-23 with Solution

Write a Java program to move all lower case letters to the front of a given word keeping the relative position all the letters(both upper and lower case) same.

Sample Solution-1:

Java Code:

public class test {
 
   public static void main(String[] args) {	   
	    String text = "Java";
		System.out.println("Original String: "+text);
		System.out.println("Move all lower case letters to the front of the said word: "+validate(text));
		text = "JavaScript";
		System.out.println("\nOriginal String: "+text);
		System.out.println("Move all lower case letters to the front of the said word: "+validate(text));
		text = "SQLite";
		System.out.println("\nOriginal String: "+text);
		System.out.println("Move all lower case letters to the front of the said word: "+validate(text));		
	}

   public static String validate(String text) {
        return text.replaceAll("[A-Z]", "") + text.replaceAll("[a-z]", "");
   }
}

Sample Output:

Original String: Java
Move all lower case letters to the front of the said word: avaJ

Original String: JavaScript
Move all lower case letters to the front of the said word: avacriptJS

Original String: SQLite
Move all lower case letters to the front of the said word: iteSQL

	    String text = "Java";
		System.out.println("Original String: "+text);
		System.out.println("Move all lower case letters to the front of the said word: "+validate(text));
		text = "JavaScript";
		System.out.println("\nOriginal String: "+text);
		System.out.println("Move all lower case letters to the front of the said word: "+validate(text));
		text = "SQLite";
		System.out.println("\nOriginal String: "+text);
		System.out.println("Move all lower case letters to the front of the said word: "+validate(text));		
	}

   public static String validate(String text) {
        String upper_ch = "",lower_ch = "";
        for(char ch : text.toCharArray())
			if(Character.isLowerCase(ch))
				lower_ch+=ch;
			else 
				upper_ch+= ch;
        return lower_ch + upper_ch;
   }
}

Sample Output:

Original String: Java
Move all lower case letters to the front of the said word: avaJ

Original String: JavaScript
Move all lower case letters to the front of the said word: avacriptJS

Original String: SQLite
Move all lower case letters to the front of the said word: iteSQL

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.
