how to validate the password (strong password having atleast 1 charecter 1 number and 1 special charecter) in

The easiest way is to use a regular expression to check if the entered password is valid. The expression ((?=.*\\d)(?=.*[A-Za-z])(?=.*[@#$%])) will check if the entered password contains at least 1 number(?=.*\\d), 1 letter(either upper or lower case(?=.*[A-Za-z]) and 1 character in the list (?=.*[@#$%]).
