I'm using java. And i want to find then replace hyperlink and anchor text of tag <a> html. I knew i must use: replace() method but i'm pretty bad about regex. An example:

<a href="">anchor text 1</a>

will be replaced by:

<a href="">anchor text 2</a>

Could you show my the regex for that purpose?

Thanks a lot.

    You could perhaps use a replaceAll with the regex:

    <a href=\"[^\"]+\">[^<]+</a>

    And replace with:

    <a href=\"\">anchor text 2</a>

    [^\"]+ and [^<]+ are negated  class and will match all characters except " and < respectively.
