OROMatcher TM is a set of regular expression pattern matching and utility classes for Java descended from a package originally written by Daniel F. Savarese , a Ph.D. student at the University of Maryland College Park. While OROMatcher TM retains vestiges of the original package in terms of design (namely the MatchResult and PatternMatcher interfaces), it is an entirely new package in terms of implementation and functionality. While there are several other regular expression packages for Java, both free and commercial, most of them suffer from flaws in performance, functionality, and correctness of implementation. To the best of our determination, OROMatcher TM exceeds all other Java regular expression packages in all those areas. Original Reusable Objects, Inc. (ORO, Inc.) is committed to providing the highest levels of quality in all of its products.
We are especially attuned to the desires of the users of our software, who have already greatly contributed to OROMatcher's feature set through their insightful comments and suggestions. We believe the users of our software are best able to determine what functionality needs to be added, removed, or redesigned. Therefore we actively solicit comments, suggestions, and bug reports from our users. You can email suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org and bug reports to email@example.com . If applicable, please include the product name in the subject of your email.
Today OROMatcher TM is used by hundreds of programmers on a daily basis to add the power of regular expressions to their Java applications and applets. OROMatcher TM will continue to be freely distributed by ORO, Inc. for the benefit of the Java programming community. Because we do not charge for use of OROMatcher TM, we cannot guarantee technical support, but we will give priority, as with all our products, to fixing reported bugs.
Currenly we want the
package to be usable with the 1.0.2 and 1.1.* JDK's. But we will release
a 1.1 enhanced version of the package leveraging the 1.1 features, such
as serializability, that our users want. At that point we will distribute
both 1.0.2 and 1.1 versions of the classes.
