Question Title What can I use to perform an email validation during entry-field accept?

Starting from the 2013 R2 the regular expression is supported on entry-field control. The power of regular expression is now available also during entry-field accept. The following example shows how to declare regular expression on a screen section entry-field:

           03 e1 entry-field line 2 col 2 size 50 value var
              validation-regexp "^w+[w-.]*@w+((-w+)|(w*)).[a-z]{2,3}$"
              validation-errmsg "Invalid email address"
              validation-opts 7.
Due to the above code, if the entry-field content doesn't match with the regexp specified by validation-regexp, then the message specified by validation-errmsg is automatically shown by the runtime and the focus is kept on the field. validation-opts=1 means that the check is done case insensitive

The regexp syntax must respect Java specifications

Regular Expression are collected and discussed on the web. For example, on this web site you can find ready-to-use expression for common issues as well as an online regexp validator tool.
