Subject [jira] Commented: (LANG-425) Sequence(String)Utils
Date Sat, 08 Nov 2008 16:26:44 GMT


Robert Scholte commented on LANG-425:

If the next release is jdk5-dependent, it's actually useless to make a version for Numbers,
I guess. But for Strings it's still interesting, so maybe it's an option to reuse some code
of the sandboxproject commons-id, but without the IdentifierGeneratorFactory, just to keep
it simple?

>                 Key: LANG-425
>                 URL:
>             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
> 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
> {code}
> SequenceUtils.nextInt(10)
> SequenceUtils.nextString("MORE")
> SequenceUtils.nextBoolean(true) //ok, this one is stupid but quite clear
> SequenceUtils.nextString("C0DE", "0123456789ABCDEF") //next hexadecimal
> {code}
> any more ideas?
