Hi there! I am developing a number of Data Structures in Bluej. Iv created a nice little arraylist program, and want to add a password generator to this program. People are already prestored within the arraylist, and contain attributes such as ID, name, password, etc. I can search a persons name within the list and then view their ID, password, and encrypted password. I want to add a field which will show password strength, bare in mind the password is already stored within the program and will not be entered via the user.
I understand that this could be done via a regular expression, or using some count method where certain goals/sets of characters increase the count which determine strength. I understand the very basic concepts of java and programming, but really don't know how to put this idea into code or something.. Can someone help? Or direct me to a good source that is most relevant to my situation?
