Hi,
I have the following input strings and I would like to split these strings in JAVA:

Input:
666666,k22      333

Open in new window


Input:
k22 666666,  333

Open in new window


or

Input:
k22, 333  666666

Open in new window


or

Input:
k22,333,666666

Open in new window


The expected out from all these input is:

Output:
k22
333
666666

Open in new window


The general rules are:
1) The number can start with or without k.
2) The number of digits may vary
3) There can be one or more spaces or a comma or both between the numbers


How can I write this split in Java?

So your delimiters are space and comma. You could combine these into a regular expression and split on either using the String class' Split method.

e.g.

String original = "666666,k22      333";
String[] result = original.split("[ ,]+");

Open in new window


...where [ ,]+ one or more ( + ) of either a space or a comma ( [ ,] ).

Sorry I made a mistake for the output:

It should be like this:

Output:
22
333
666666

Open in new window


The general rule is:
- There shouldn't be any "k" before the number in the output

Well, I replaced all "k" characters before the split. It works now.
