The return type (Integer) should return 1 if all dashes are placed correctly, else return 2.

Note: The strings must have exactly the same number of dashes in exactly the same positions. The strings might be of different length.

java program to validate a string

package com.demo;
import java.util.*;
public class Main {
public static void main(String[] args) {
Scanner sc = new Scanner(System.in);
String s1 = sc.nextLine();
String s2 = sc.nextLine();
getvalues(s1, s2);
public static void getvalues(String s1, String s2) {
ArrayList<Integer> l1 = new ArrayList<Integer>();
for (int i = 0; i < s1.length(); i++) {
if (s1.charAt(i) == '-') {
ArrayList<Integer> l2 = new ArrayList<Integer>();
for (int i = 0; i < s2.length(); i++) {
if (s2.charAt(i) == '-') {
if (l1.equals(l2)) {
} else
