    I've had to mess around with regex and ReadyAPI and escaping escape characters. It gets really tricky, but I can show you an example I've been working with: 


    Here is a standard regex pattern:


    To make this work in ReadyAPI / groovy, I have to escape it to look like this:


    I am taking a look at your example line and match pattern and will see if I can figure it out. Can you potentially provide a copy of the log file you are trying to parse? It'll be easier to work with what you have, or a mocked up file of what you need to process. That way I'm working with the closest thing possible to the source.

    YES.. !!!! :-D

    Why this simple help is not a part of your user guide? I did not found any information about escaping by "\\" nowhere.

    It works!

    I can write simple regex to detect quotes like "\\{\\}" and it matches.

    SO I KNOW, that in between { and } is nothing.. so no problem.

    I can write simple regex to check if end of line is present:



    Thanks a lot. 

    PS: please add this usefull thing in to your WIKI pages.. where your are explaining RegExp in groovy.. will be nice to know.
