Pattern matches(String ,CharSequence) method in Java with Examples
The matches(String, CharSequence) method of the Pattern class in Java is used to answer whether or not the regular expression matches on the input. To do so we compile the given regular expression and attempts to match the given input against it where both regular expression and input passed as a parameter to the method. If a pattern is to be used multiple times, compiling it once and reusing it will be more efficient than invoking this method each time.

Parameters: This method accepts two parameters:
