Pattern Syntax Checker Hackerrank problem solution

Pattern Syntax Checker Hackerrank

Using Regex, we can easily match or search for patterns in a text. Before searching for a pattern, we have to specify one using some well-defined syntax.

In this problem, you are given a pattern. You have to check whether the syntax of the given pattern is valid.

Note: In this problem, a regex is only valid if you can compile it using the Pattern.compile method.

Input Format

The first line of input contains an integer N, denoting the number of test cases. The next N lines contain a string of any printable characters representing the pattern of a regex.

Output Format

For each test case, print Valid if the syntax of the given pattern is correct. Otherwise, print Invalid. Do not print the quotes.

Sample Input

3
([A-Z])(.+)
[AZ[a-z](a-z)
batcatpat(nat
Sample Output

Valid
Invalid
Invalid

Solution

import java.util.Scanner;
import java.util.regex.*;

public class Solution
{
   public static void main(String[] args){
      Scanner in = new Scanner(System.in);
      int testCases = Integer.parseInt(in.nextLine());
      while(testCases>0){
         String pattern = in.nextLine();
          testCases--;
    try
    {
        Pattern.compile(pattern);
        System.out.println("Valid");
    }
      catch (Exception e)
          {
          System.out.println("Invalid");
      }
             //Write your code
      }
   }
}
import java.util.Scanner;
import java.util.regex.*;

public class Solution
{
   public static void main(String[] args){
      Scanner in = new Scanner(System.in);
      int testCases = Integer.parseInt(in.nextLine());
      while(testCases>0){
         String pattern = in.nextLine();
          testCases--;
    try
    {
        Pattern.compile(pattern);
        System.out.println("Valid");
    }
      catch (Exception e)
          {
          System.out.println("Invalid");
      }
             //Write your code
      }
   }
}

Pattern compile(String regex) – This compiles the given regular expression into a pattern. So if a pattern is invalid, it throws an exception and hence we use try catch to handle the exception.
