# Java: Find whether a region in the current string matches a region in another string

## Java String: Exercise-23 with Solution

Write a Java program to find out whether a region in the current string matches a region in another string.

Sample Solution:

Java Code:

``````// Define a public class named Exercise23.
public class Exercise23 {

// Define the main method.
public static void main(String[] args) {

// Define two string variables.
String str1 = "Shanghai Houston Colorado Alexandria";
String str2 = "Alexandria Colorado Houston Shanghai";

// Determine whether characters 0 through 7 in str1
// match characters 28 through 35 in str2.
boolean match1 = str1.regionMatches(0, str2, 28, 8);

// Determine whether characters 9 through 15 in str1
// match characters 9 through 15 in str2.
boolean match2 = str1.regionMatches(9, str2, 9, 8);

// Display the results of the regionMatches method calls.
System.out.println("str1[0 - 7] == str2[28 - 35]? " + match1);
System.out.println("str1[9 - 15] == str2[9 - 15]? " + match2);
}
}
```
```

Sample Output:

```str1[0 - 7] == str2[28 - 35]? true
str1[9 - 15] == str2[9 - 15]? false
```
