Subject [jira] Updated: (LANG-260) StringEscapeUtils should expose escape*() methods taking Writer argument
Date Wed, 31 May 2006 09:34:30 GMT
     [ ]

Henri Yandell updated LANG-260:

    Fix Version: 2.2

Consider for 2.2. Haven't looked at the source in question for a few weeks, but it sounds
fine at first glance.

> StringEscapeUtils.escapeXML(String) is the only exposed variant, but the package private
Entities.XML class it uses under the covers has a variant taking a Writer. The StringEscapeUtils.escapeXML(Writer,
String) variant would be much more efficient when incrementally escaping values and adding
them one-by-one and could seemingly be exposed with very little effort. Ditto for the unescapeXML()
case, and presumably other styles of escape/unescape (like HTML) that use the Entities class
under the covers.
