Regular expression for validating numbers

Three classes seem to be generated: A factory (used internally by the Regex engine), a That’s… But nevertheless: it’s all compiled, so performance may just be awesome!Having seen the compiled code from candidate 3, we decided on writing our own valiation code without using regular expressions. In other cases, check each character and when one does not match, return false early without validating the rest of the string.

Here we create a Reg Exp pattern and use the match to validate it.

Just a boolean giving us a clue on whether the value is valid or not. Go check their getting started with Benchmark Dot Net page - it takes a couple of attributes and a method call to run a reliable benchmark.

The benchmark we built was this one: Based on these result, our custom validation logic was added into production code and proved much, much faster!

And especially in this case, where we’re only validating the string consists of a set of allowed characters, and making sure the string length is between 1 and 254 characters in length?

Some Duck Duck Go-ing (horrible as a verb…) later, we found a few interesting articles: Unfortunately, none of these seemed to explain the numbers we were seeing.

Using regular expressions the entered content can be validated with advanced conditions like the string entered shouldn’t contain spaces, special characters, numbers, uppercase or lowercase etc.

Once you learn the art of using regular expressions you can use it with many computer languages.

A while back, we were performance profiling an application and noticed a big performance bottleneck while mapping objects using Auto Mapper.

Mapping is of course somewhat expensive, but the numbers we were seeing were way higher than expected: mapping was ridiculously slow!
