Hi,

I am working on below challenge.
http://codingbat.com/prob/p186177
Psedo code:
1. check  if str has sub string if yes increment by 1 or repeat

I wrote my code as below and not passing all tests
public int strCount(String str, String sub) {
  if (str.length() <2){ 
	    	return 0;
	    		}
	    if (str.startsWith( sub) {
	    	return 1 + strCount(str.substring(2));
	    	}
	    	else {
		   return strCount(str.substring(1));
	    	  
	    	}
}

Open in new window


Compile problems:


Error:      if (str.startsWith( sub) {
                             ^
Syntax error on token ")", ) expected after this token


see Example Code to help with compile problems

Any improvements or alternate approaches?      

please advise

Here is my code.
public int strCount(String str, String sub) {
  int index = str.indexOf(sub);
  if(index == -1 || str.length() < sub.length())return 0;
  return 1 + strCount(str.substring(index + sub.length()), sub);
}
