Regular Expression

A regular expression is a pattern which may match a string .

In this example the pattern (land|stan) matches land or stan. So Afghanistan and Finland match but Albania does not match .

The match in Java must include the whole string. For that reason you must include .* at the beginning and .* at the end if your pattern is allowed to occur in the middle of the string.
