Subject [jira] Created: (LANG-425) Sequence(String)Utils
Date Mon, 14 Apr 2008 20:43:04 GMT

                 Key: LANG-425
             Project: Commons Lang
          Issue Type: Wish
    Affects Versions: 2.4
            Reporter: Robert Scholte
            Priority: Trivial

Don't you think it's kind of strange to have RandomUtils and RandomStringUtils, but not just
the ordinairy SequenceUtils?
I've seen commons-id in the sandbox, but maybe some basics should become part of commons lang.

Most classes of within this package are stateless/static, or they have a state within a method
(such as StrBuilder). SequenceUtils can only be static, if it has the startValue.
For example
SequenceUtils.nextBoolean(true) //ok, this one is stupid but quite clear
SequenceUtils.nextString("C0DE", "0123456789ABCDEF") //next hexadecimal

any more ideas?
