Subject [jira] Created: (LANG-465) Better advertizing of utils
Date Mon, 13 Oct 2008 13:50:44 GMT
Better advertizing of utils

                 Key: LANG-465
             Project: Commons Lang
          Issue Type: Wish
    Affects Versions: 2.4
         Environment: any
            Reporter: Gregor B. Rosenauer
            Priority: Trivial

Recently I had a problem with Unicode characters and some backend system that does not support
I searched the Web for existing source and found some which I reused for translating to/from
Unicode escapes, so I could store the data in the backend system without garbling characters.

Now I just found out about StringEscapeUtils.escapeJava() and .unescapeJava() which does exactly
this and works perfectly!

The Apache community never seizes to amaze me, well done - but please *do* advertize these
handy utility functions more publicly! Why do only the "front end" projects get all the attention,
when there are such jewels hiding away in the dark? :-)))
Thanks for another great library.
