Subject [jira] Updated: (LANG-507) StringEscapeUtils.unescapeJava should support \u+ notation
Date Sat, 06 Jun 2009 05:03:07 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LANG-507?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Henri Yandell updated LANG-507:
-------------------------------

    Fix Version/s: 3.0

It doesn't sound like it should be in unescapeJava if it's not in the Java spec, but sounds
like an interesting feature to be able to support.

> Currently, when trying to unescape a String with Unicode escapes in the common notation,
e.g., \u+0022, I get a NumberFormatException:
> org.apache.commons.lang.exception.NestableRuntimeException: Unable to parse unicode value:
+002
> Note that the number is also parsed incorrectly as it is shortened by one character (obviously,
the parser gets confused by the '+' and only takes up to 4 bytes, so it neglects the last
digit).
> I am aware that in Java, Unicode is escaped as "\u" followed by 4 bytes that represent
the hex code in the Unicode map, but the \u+ notation is commonly used outside the Java world
and it would be very handy if StringEscapeUtils supported that, at least as an option.
> Would you please consider adding this feature to 3.0?
