      String[] str2 = str.split("<");
      str = str2[0];
   for(char x: str.toCharArray()){
      if((x >= 48 && x <= 57) || (x>=65 && x <= 90) || (x >= 97 && x<= 122) || x=='.'){
         returnString += x;
   return returnString.trim();

   Like      Feedback     string  .contains()  .split()  string split  string contains  remove characters from string  remove alien characters

 Sample 3. Method to get a map of words and their count by passing in the string

Map<String,Integer> wordCountMap = new TreeMap();
String[] words = text.split(" ");
Set<Integer> countSet;
for(String word: words) {
wordCountMap.put(word.toLowerCase(), wordCountMap.get(word.toLowerCase()).intValue() + 1);
} else {
wordCountMap.put(word.toLowerCase(), 1);

countSet = new TreeSet(Collections.reverseOrder());

for(Integer inte: countSet) {
for(Entry<String,Integer> entry: wordCountMap.entrySet()){
if(entry.getValue() == inte) {

   Like      Feedback     map  word count  map of string and integer  containsKey  string split  treeset  Collections.reverseOrder  set addAll   entry

 Sample 4. Check if the String contains specified characters using CharSetUtils (Apache Commons)

System.out.println(CharSetUtils.containsAny("Whats Up ?", "W")); // Prints true as the String contains character W  System.out.println(CharSetUtils.containsAny("Whats Up ?", "YZ")); // Prints false as the String doesn't contain character Y or Z

   Like      Feedback     CharSetUtils (Apache Commons)  Check if String contains characters
