if (idType.equals(BusinessCodes.ID_TYPE_SSN))
            {
      
      formattedIdentifier = formatSSN(id);

the formatSSN(id) method will return SSN of form   123-45-6789

now formattedIdentifier = 123-45-6789

I need to plug a code here that will return this formatted identifier as ***-**-6789

I tried following but its not working , I am getting an error "Exception thrown by getter for property formattedIdentifier of bean item"


if (idType.equals(BusinessCodes.ID_TYPE_SSN))
            {
      
      formattedIdentifier = formatSSN(id);

//I am trying the following code

String expression = "^\\d{3}[-]?\\d{2}[-]?\\d{4}$";
CharSequence input = formattedIdentifier;
                  Pattern patt = Pattern.compile(expression);
                  Matcher m = patt.matcher(input);
                  m.replaceAll("***-**-$");
                  formattedIdentifier=(String)input;

}

return formattedIdentifier ;
}

                 String formattedIdentifier = "123-45-6789";

String output = "***-**-" + formattedIdentifier.substring(7);

        System.out.println(output);

Open in new window


Output:

String formattedIdentifier = "12-3456789";

String output = "**-" + formattedIdentifier.substring(3);

        System.out.println(output);
will this work for form  12-3456789 ?

It does not matter on jsp page or in application - you can make
a string which you eed and print it in jsp page  

Make it like that and it will print modified string:

formattedIdentifier = "***-**-" + formattedIdentifier.substring(7);

This will work in both cases:
formattedIdentifier = "***-**-" + formattedIdentifier.substring(formattedIdentifier.length()-4);

This will wortk with all fioms as long as last 4 digits are together

                 String formattedIdentifier = "123-456789";
 //String formattedIdentifier = "12-3456789";

formattedIdentifier = "***-**-" +  formattedIdentifier.substring(formattedIdentifier.length()-4);

        System.out.println(formattedIdentifier);
