Pattern.compile("\\<tr\\>([a-z,_,0-9,A-Z,\\/,.,>,<]+) \\/tr\\>")

Sorry i thought it was a PHP code. IN Java you need to have escape it  using \\ while in PHP there is just  \.

Pattern.compile("\\<tr\\>([a-z,_,0-9,A-Z,\\/,.,<,>\\s].*)")

If thats a space then need to add that in the pattern

Hope this helps

You shouldn't reinvent an html parser using regex - it's neither sound, appropriate or necessary, but the following works for me:
String s = net.proteanit.util.StringUtils.fileToString("tags");
	Pattern p = Pattern.compile("(?msi)<tr>(.*?)</tr>");
	Matcher m = p.matcher(s);
	while(m.find()) {
	    System.out.println(m.group(1));
	}
