Recently I’ve been playing around with java and just had learned about if statements. Is there a particular reason why my if statement doesn’t work in this case? “
Java String contains() method checks whether a particular sequence of characters is part of a given string or not.
emailAddress.contains(“.edu , .org”) will only return true if the emailAddress contains the sequence “.edu , .org”.
You should use :
emailAddress.contains(".edu") || emailAddress.contains(".org")
But what if a user has the following email address : “firstname.lastname@example.org” ? Your if statement will also return true.
Good luck to improve this check 😁
