Hello Experts,

is there a way to get the line number where the pattern was matched?

	public static void main(String[] args) {

		String source = "12:22:22.826 message QueueRoute to 5554443322 \n"
				+ "	response callerAttributes id:5554443322 \n"
				+ "	confirmation callDelivered to agent 675 \n"
				+ "12:22:22.926 message AddRoute to queue 65 \n"
				+ "12:22:23.126 message CancelRoute to queue 45 \n"
				+ "12:22:24.026 message QueueRoute to 3332227766 \n"
				+ "	response callerAttributes id:5558883322 \n"
				+ "	confirmation callDelivered to agent 675 \n" +
				"";
		Pattern p = Pattern.compile("(\\d{2}:\\d{2}:\\d{2}\\.\\d{3}).*(Queue\\w+).*(\\s\\d{10}\\s)"); 
		Matcher m = p.matcher(source);
		while (m.find()) {
			// test
			System.out.println("Time: " + m.group(1));
			System.out.println("call: " + m.group(2) + m.group(3));

		}

	}// end of main

Open in new window


in other words, groups 1, 2, and 3 were found @ line 1 and 6...

see what I mean? any ideas how to do this?

in advance, thank you for any help provided...

regards,

Would it be an acceptable solution for you to split the source into lines and then use a for loop to check each line separately? Then you could use the parameter of the for loop as your line counter.
