Hi,

I need a regex to match the following situations. Thanks!

A. The last segment of (1)-(3) show increased numeric pieces:
1) http://www.binggo.com/shipin/20207011122957
2) http://www.binggo.com/shipin/202070111
3) http://www.binggo.com/shipin/202070

B. The last segment of (4)-(5) begins with a\d+.html
4) http://www.binggo.com/shipin/a0207.html
5) http://www.binggo.com/shipin/a0207b111c2957.html

C) The last segment of (6) are \d+.html
6) http://www.binggo.com/shipin/20601081184657.html

D) The (7)-(10) are much more difficult, and I can figure out a regex for it.
7) http://www.binggo.com/shipin/a20209b2020904h2616/315432.html
8) http://www.binggo.com/shipin/a20209b2020904h2616/
9) http://www.binggo.com/shipin/a20209b2020904/
10) http://www.binggo.com/shipin/a20209/

So do you want in all cases to return everything after "shipin/" ?

I think your 5) will not match a\d+.html either

>>I need a regex to match the following situations.

1-3 are not regex territory
7-10 likewise

The rest are suitable for regex treatment:
final String PATTERN = ".*?\\d+\\.html";
boolean valid = urlString.matches(PATTERN);

Your \d is not realy digit but hex: [\da-f]+
Do not forget the iGnoreCase modifier.

Sory no hex.It has "h" and therefore it can be base64?

What are you trying to match/extract? The whole URL, or just parts of each?

Please forgive my ignorance, but are you looking for one regex pattern to match all, or one per group (i.e. A, B, C, D)?

While I await your response, I'll hazard a guess to say you want all to be matched. Please try the following:

String pattern = "http://www\\.binggo\\.com/shipin/(?:[a-z0-9]+\\.html|[a-z0-9]+(?:/(?:[a-z0-9]+\\.html)?)?)?";
