Subject [jira] Commented: (LANG-405) StringUtils.truncate() to cut out middle part of a String
Date Wed, 13 Feb 2008 20:31:09 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LANG-405?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12568703#action_12568703
] 

Gregor B. Rosenauer commented on LANG-405:
------------------------------------------

actually
public String truncateMiddle(String str, int length);
would suffice since the middle part is shortened to an ellipsis "...", or was the "String
middle" ment as a placeholder?
Anyway, 'nough talking, I see your hint clearly:) Hope to have some time by the end of the
week to look into this.

> 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.
