Main subject

About regular expressions for passwords First to understand positive look-ahead I wrote and executed the following code to check the operation I was worried about false when it should return true.


package sample;

import java.util.regex.Matcher;
import java.util.regex.Pattern;

public class RegexWord {
	public static void main(String[] args) {
		Pattern p = Pattern.compile("^(?=.*[a-z])");
		Matcher m = p.matcher("abc");
		Boolean result = m.matches();

		System.out.println("result:" + result);
	}
}

In conclusion, I had to rewrite the line Pattern p = ~ as follows: Pattern p = Pattern.compile("^(?=.*[a-z]).*");
