Subject [jira] Commented: (LANG-412) StrBuilder appendFixedWidth does not handle nulls
Date Wed, 13 Feb 2008 05:34:08 GMT


Henri Yandell commented on LANG-412:

Confirmed (visually). As appendNull's effect is to do nothing if it is set to null, my assumption
is that having nullText be null is merely an optmization for the empty String.

So I think the solution will be to make the fixed width methods use an empty string if they
get back a null nullText.

has not been set.
