Here is the question:
How to write a search method include "Like" such as SQL in J2ME
here is the answer that was converted to comments (screen shot)
please note I am not the answerer
here is the FAQ reference that was used to justify conversion:
What of FAQ points apply to conversion in this case?
I checked all six points that are in FAQ now and per my understanding, none applies (commentary, different question, thanksmetoo, duplicate, link, not an answer).
- The way I see it, "you need regular expressions for this" is essentially an answer to the question asked (read through the question text to find it - search recordstore doesn't need match 100% percent).
Given the context - question text and especially code example used by OP to approach the solution - reference to 3rd party J2ME library provided by answerer looks like having enough information to be considered useful.
It would be helpful to see the explanation that takes into account the question text and code. To avoid misunderstanding, an explanation for why it would be reasonable to ignore the question in this case, would also qualify.
