Hi,

I'm trying to match whitespace characters (incliding tabs and, importantly, returns.

I'm using jedit and typing in the regular expressions in hte search box.

I'm trying to match the below code (and variations of it with maybe more spaces or more tabs where its alignment is different):

if (boolNeedsConnection){
                  boolSuccess=EComCon.commitOrRollback(con,boolSuccess);
            }

below is my best effort, but it does not match anyything

if \(boolNeedsConnection\){[[:space:][:blank:][:cntrl:]]boolSuccess=EComCon.commitOrRollback(con,boolSuccess);[[:space:][:blank:][:cntrl:]]}


can you help?

if\s*\(boolNeedsConnection\)\s*{\s*boolSuccess=EComCon\.commitOrRollback\(con,boolSuccess\);\s*}
