		System.out.println("Original string: "+text);
		System.out.println("Insert a dash between an upper case letter and a lower case letter in the said string:\n"+validate(text));
		text = "The quick brown Fox jumps over the lazy Dog.";
		System.out.println("\nOriginal string: "+text);
		System.out.println("Insert a dash between an upper case letter and a lower case letter in the said string:\n"+validate(text));	
		text = "java exercises";
		System.out.println("\nOriginal string: "+text);
		System.out.println("Insert a dash between an upper case letter and a lower case letter in the said string:\n"+validate(text));
        }

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