    What have you tried?

    What are the rules for examples 2 and 3? The search looks a lot more complicated there.

    Be sure to wrap your code with code tags:
    [code=java]
    YOUR CODE GOES HERE
    [/code]
    to get highlighting and preserve formatting.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    First look at what tools may be useful: The String class's methods and some collection class like Map or Set to hold parts of the String as the search is made.
