StringUtils.truncate() to cut out middle part of a String
---------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: LANG-405
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LANG-405
             Project: Commons Lang
          Issue Type: New Feature
    Affects Versions: 2.2
            Reporter: Gregor B. Rosenauer
            Priority: Minor


It would be handy to have a String method that cuts out the middle part of a String such that
as much as possible is kept from the start and end of the String, but the middle part is replaced
by an ellipsis "..."

BeOS had a function like this, but it's poorly documented, missing examples:
http://www.beunited.org/bebook/The%20Support%20Kit/String.html#Truncate()

e.g.:
A very long text with unimportant stuff in the middle but interesting start and end to see
if the text is complete.
becomes:
A very long text...to see if the text is complete.
