Subject [jira] Commented: (LANG-260) StringEscapeUtils should expose escape*() methods taking Writer argument
Date Thu, 01 Feb 2007 09:45:06 GMT


Holger Hoffstätte commented on LANG-260:

StringWriter is just a glorified StringBuffer and has exactly no performance advantage to
a correctly presized StringBuffer. I think the refactoring done for this has undone what I
just commented on in LANG-287.

> 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.
