Java programming Exercises: Find a string that has a p followed by anything, ending in q

Java Regular Expression: Exercise-5 with Solution

Write a Java program that matches a string that has a 'p' followed by anything, ending in 'q'.

Sample Solution:

Java Code:

import java.util.Scanner;
public class test {
 
   public static void main(String[] args) {
	   
	    System.out.println(validate("phkuyrt"));
		System.out.println(validate("pq"));
		System.out.println(validate("pccddbbjjjq"));
        System.out.println(validate("Jar"));
        System.out.println(validate("pjhut"));		
        }

   public static String validate(String text) {
	   if (text.matches("p.*?q$"))
                return "Found a match!";
       else
                return "Not matched!";
   }
}

Sample Output:

Not matched!
Found a match!
Found a match!
Not matched!
Not matched!

Split Java String by New Line

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