How can I have Java's replaceAll function ignore case?

I'm working on a small project in Java and I can't seem to get the replaceAll function for strings to ignore the case. For example, I have
String str = "This is a Test string";
str = str.replaceAll("test", "#");

I've also tried
str = str.toLowerCase().replaceAll("test", "#");

The problem with that is it destroys the case. Is there anyway I can use replaceAll, and have it remove the specified string regardless of its case, without destroying the case of the whole sentence?
1 Solution
str = str.replaceAll("(?i)test", "#");
