Subject [jira] Closed: (LANG-465) Better advertizing of utils
Date Sat, 28 Feb 2009 04:01:13 GMT


Henri Yandell closed LANG-465.

    Resolution: Fixed

Torsten gives a talk on Commons at a high level each ApacheCon. There have been books and

*shrug* :) Most people are quite bored when we start going through the long list of small
useful things - they're looking for paradigm shifts.

> Better advertizing of utils
> ---------------------------
>                 Key: LANG-465
>                 URL:
>             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 Unicode.
> 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
> 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.
