  2. An integral type code equivalent to one of the statically defined symbols listed below.
  3. The approximate position in the input string where the error occurred.

Method Index

 o getMessage()
Reports the descriptive message associated with this exception as well as its index position in the string or character array being compiled.
 o getPosition()
Returns the position, relative to the string or character array being compiled, where the error occurred.
 o getType()
Returns the type of the exception, one of the constants listed above.

Variables

 o REG_BADRPT
 public static final int REG_BADRPT
Error flag. Invalid use of repetition operators such as using `*' as the first character.

 o REG_BADBR
 public static final int REG_BADBR
Error flag. Invalid use of back reference operator.

 o REG_EBRACE
 public static final int REG_EBRACE
Error flag. Un-matched brace interval operators.

 o REG_EBRACK
 public static final int REG_EBRACK
Error flag. Un-matched bracket list operators.

 o REG_ERANGE
 public static final int REG_ERANGE
Error flag. Invalid use of the range operator, eg. the ending point of the range occurs prior to the starting point.

 o REG_ECTYPE
 public static final int REG_ECTYPE
Error flag. Unknown character class name. Not implemented.

 o REG_EPAREN
 public static final int REG_EPAREN
Error flag. Un-matched parenthesis group operators.

 o REG_ESUBREG
 public static final int REG_ESUBREG
Error flag. Invalid back reference to a subexpression.

 o REG_EEND
 public static final int REG_EEND
Error flag. Non specific error. Not implemented.

 o REG_ESCAPE
 public static final int REG_ESCAPE
Error flag. Invalid escape sequence. Not implemented.

 o REG_BADPAT
 public static final int REG_BADPAT
Error flag. Invalid use of pattern operators such as group or list.

 o REG_ESIZE
 public static final int REG_ESIZE
Error flag. Compiled regular expression requires a pattern buffer larger than 64Kb. Not implemented.

 o REG_ESPACE
 public static final int REG_ESPACE
Error flag. The regex routines ran out of memory. Not implemented.

Methods

 o getType
 public int getType()
Returns the type of the exception, one of the constants listed above.

 o getPosition
 public int getPosition()
Returns the position, relative to the string or character array being compiled, where the error occurred. This position is generally the point where the error was detected, not necessarily the starting index of a bad subexpression.

 o getMessage
 public String getMessage()
Reports the descriptive message associated with this exception as well as its index position in the string or character array being compiled.

Overrides:
getMessage in class Throwable
