LotusScript Support for Regex

Regex is a very common need, but currently LotusScript does not support it. All other major language support this.

    I used something like this a while ago which still works.

    Dim x As String
    Dim regexp As Variant

    x = "5s"

    Set regexp = CreateObject("VBScript.RegExp")
    regexp.Global = True
    regexp.Pattern = "^[0-9]+$"
    Print regexp.Test(x)

    wrapping LotusScript around the JVM

    This is a workaround. Moreover, the present direction of development is to abandon Java on the client.

    We support this so far with a UseLSX wrapper around java.util.regex.Pattern. Seems that most things this site suggests are doable within the domino environment by wrapping LotusScript around the JVM.

    both regex replace and regex match would be good to have.
