JRegexpTester is a standalone Swing application that helps you test regular expressions with the Sun Java standard API (java.util.regex). The extracted data can be modified with formatters similar to those used by sprintf, or with standard Java date and decimal formatters. It features RegExLib library integration with more than 900 patterns.
Since the release 0.3, JRegexpTester helps you manage CSV (comma-separated values) files.
JRegexpTester provides the following features :
Very interesting : the CsvParser used by JRegexpTester is explained in details by its author Julian M Bucknall at http://www.boyet.com/.
SpikeSource tests, certifies and supports open source software. [it is a great quotation]
JRegexpTester among the resources of RegexLib.
RegexLib is the best community site for the regular expressions managed by Steven A. Smith (USA, founder) and Darren John Neimke (Australia, lead developer). [Thanks very much to you]
A great German support : "Regulare Ausdrucke komfortabel testen
...und weil ich heute gar so sehr in Blog-Laune bin, hier noch ein Bonbon: JRegexpTester.
Erstellen und Testen von Regularen Ausdrucken a.k.a "Regular Expressions" ist oftmals eine muhselige und zeitraubende Angelgenheit.
Die Java-Software JRegexpTester ist eine grafische Oberflache (in English, im MacOS X - Look), die den Umgang mit Regularen Ausdrucken immens erleichtert.
Komfortabel zu bedienen, mit uber 900 vorgefertigten "Expressions", plattform-ubergreifend (da ein Java-Programm, dafur aber *erstaunlich schnell*) ...
Absolute Benutzungs-Empfehlung fur alle Webworker!" [Danke shon Wolfgang] Friedrich-Alexander-Universitat Erlangen-Nurnberg ( blog )
A nice Spanish support : "... herramienta, casi imprescindible para lidiar con las temidas expresiones regulares." [Muchas Gracias a Raul Murciano]
JRegexpTester 0.34 is also a notable software release for Erik C. Thauvin (Ph. D. in Computer Science - Berkeley). Erik Thauvin maintains a blog, as well as one of the web's first and most popular linkblogs, which he updates daily with the latest Java and technology news. [Thank you very much]
|Top Ten Data Crunching Tips and Tricks (06/09/2005)|
"... As well as illustrating reluctant matches, this example also shows why regular expressions can be so hard to debug: adding one character completely changes the way the RE behaves. This is why I'm very fond of graphical tools for building and debugging REs, such as Edi Weitz's Regex Coach, JRegexpTester, and the Rx Toolkit in ActiveState's Komodo IDE."
Greg Wilson has been crunching data for more than 20 years. He is an independent programming consultant, an adjunct professor at the University of Toronto, and a contributing editor with Doctor Dobb's Journal. He is the author of Data Crunching and Practical Parallel Programming.
|My favorite motto is :|
The quality that makes you go to great effort to reduce overall energy expenditure. It makes you write labour-saving programs that other people will find useful, and document what you wrote so you don't have to answer so many questions about it. Hence the first great virtue of a programmer."
Larry Wall [Programming Perl, Larry Wall and Randal. L. Schwartz, 1992 O'Reilly and Associates, Inc., page 426.]

Great Software! 2004-09-22 09:00 This is very useful! And looks quite programmer-friendly too! (I mean, user-friendly, but the user is a programmer :) Gustavo Hexsel ( The Edmonton Java Meetup Group - Canada ) [Brazil]
Excellent for testing Mon, 24 Jan 2005 02:23:01 -0800 To learn more about regexp I strongly recommend you download JRegexpTester. It's excellent for testing. Anders Haal ( www.ingby.com ) [Sweden]
