Check if URL is valid or not in Java
Given a URL as string, we need to find if the given URL is valid or not.
Input : str = "https://www.geeksforgeeks.org/" Output : Yes Input : str = "https:// www.geeksforgeeks.org/" Output : No Note that there is a space after https://
We can use java.net.url class to validate a URL. The idea is to create a URL object from the specified String representation. If we do not get exception while creating the object, we return true. Else we return false.
