How to validate IFSC Code using Regular Expression

Given string str, the task is to check whether the given string is a valid IFSC (Indian Financial System) Code or not by using Regular Expression
The valid IFSC (Indian Financial System) Code must satisfy the following conditions:

1. It should be 11 characters long.
2. The first four characters should be upper case alphabets.
3. The fifth character should be 0.
4. The last six characters are usually numeric, but can also be alphabetic.

Examples:

Input: str = “SBIN0125620”;
Output: true
Explanation:
The given string satisfies all the above-mentioned conditions. Therefore, it is a valid IFSC (Indian Financial System) Code.
Input: str = “SBIN0125”;
Output: false
Explanation:
The given string has 8 characters. Therefore it is not a valid IFSC (Indian Financial System) Code.
Input: str = “1234SBIN012”;
Output: false
Explanation:
The given string doesn’t starts with alphabets. Therefore it is not a valid IFSC (Indian Financial System) Code.

Approach: The idea is to use Regular Expression to solve this problem. The following steps can be followed to compute the answer.

• Get the String.
• Create a regular expression to check valid IFSC (Indian Financial System) Code as mentioned below:
`regex = "^[A-Z]{4}0[A-Z0-9]{6}\$";`
• Where:
• ^ represents the starting of the string.
• [A-Z]{4} represents the first four characters should be upper case alphabets.
• 0 represents the fifth character should be 0.
• [A-Z0-9]{6} represents the next six characters usually numeric, but can also be alphabetic.
• \$ represents the ending of the string.

Below is the implementation of the above approach:

Using String.matches() method

This method tells whether or not this string matches the given regular expression. An invocation of this method of the form str.matches(regex) yields exactly the same result as the expression Pattern.matches(regex, str). Pattern.compile(regex) compiles the pattern so that when you execute Matcher.matches(), the pattern is not recompiled again and again. Pattern.compile pre compiles it. However, if you use string.matches, it compiles the pattern every time you execute this line. So, it is better to use Pattern.compile().
