Subject [jira] Created: (LANG-424) Improve Javadoc for StringUtils class
Date Mon, 14 Apr 2008 06:45:05 GMT
Improve Javadoc for StringUtils class

                 Key: LANG-424
             Project: Commons Lang
          Issue Type: Improvement
    Affects Versions: 2.4
            Reporter: Denise Fernandez

In the StringUtils class it would be helpful if in the following methods, the Javadoc is improved:


I think there should be better documentation in the case where the separator string is not
found in the search string: It should be explicity noted that in this case an empty string
will be returned.

In the following methods:


It should be documented that if the separator is not found in the search string, the search
string is returned.

I realise there are examples for both these cases, but I think that they should be separately
and explicity documented as special cases. I had expected that substringAfterLast would return
the original string if the separator was not found in it and this caused me some trouble.
