populate it into a hashmap, and then it would be easier for you to pull values by key

for e.g.,

String[] tokens = "Create module ASID=666, ACIN=231, CTSID=205, RECT=0,0,322,54".replace( "Create module ", "" ).split( ", " ) ;

Map<String, String> map = new HashMap<String, String>() ;
for( String token : tokens ){
  String[] temp = token.split( "=" ) ;
  map.put( temp[0], temp[1] ) ;
}

System.out.println( map.get( "ASID" ) ) ;

String s = "Create module ASID=666, ACIN=231, CTSID=205, RECT=0,0,322,54";

String newS = s.substring(s.indexOf("=")+1,s.indexOf(","))+" with  "+s.substring(s.lastIndexOf("=")+1);

System.out.println(newS);

Thanks to all.

 but i had a condition  but i do not why it goes to the first loop only, but when i try for create Banner input it still goes to the first loop

String s = "Create module ASID=666, ACIN=231, CTSID=205, RECT=0,0,322,54"";
// String s = "Create Banner ASID=666, ACIN=231, CTSID=205, RECT=0,0,322,54"";

          
           boolean module = s.contains("Create module");
          
          
           if (module)   {
          
                 String[] tokens = s.replace( "Create module", "" ).split( ", " ) ;
                 Map<String, String> map = new HashMap<String, String>() ;
                      for( String token : tokens ){
                        String[] temp1 = token.split( "=" ) ;
                        map.put( temp1[0], temp1[1] ) ;
                      }  
                      s = map.get( "ASID" );
                      
                   
           }
          
          
           else  {
                 boolean  banner= s.contains("Create banner");
                 String[] tokens = s1.replace( "Create banner", "" ).split( ", " ) ;
                 Map<String, String> map1 = new HashMap<String, String>() ;
                      for( String token : tokens ){
                        String[] temp = token.split( "=" ) ;
                        map1.put( temp[0], temp[1] ) ;
                      }  
                      s1 = map1.get( "ASID" );
                      
                 
           }

boolean module = s.contains("Create module");

.contains() takes a CharSequence

On first sight, it looks like the last code you posted is too verbose, but shall take a closer look

Update: yes it is too verbose. The code also doesn't work.

The code i posted will work for either case (module/banner)

your code gives error  while i print "[Ljava.lang.String;@24c21495"

{
      String s = ""Create module ASID=666, ACIN=231, CTSID=205, RECT=0,0,322,54";";
//      String[] tokens = s.replace( "Create Banner ", "" ).split( ", " ) ;
      String[] atoms = s.replaceAll(".*ASID=([^ ]+).*RECT=(.+)", "$1$2")
            .split(",", 2);
      
      System.out.println(atoms);
