Subject [jira] Commented: (LANG-288) StrTokenizer needs to support access to the token separators
Date Fri, 05 Feb 2010 13:10:27 GMT


Chandrashekar M commented on LANG-288:

When we Tokenize  "a.b@c.d"  with ".@" using StrTokenizer  it wont tokenize it like StringTokeniZer
which supports multiple delimeter tokenizing.

So does that mean we will continue with existing behaviour and only when the users call method
like lastSeparator() we will simply parse the String and return the Delimiters? or we will
refactor the API such that it will behavi like StringTokeniZer

> With StrTokenizer at present you cannot extract the separators between the tokens, a
feature which is possible with StringTokenizer.
> Thus tokenizing "a.b@c.d" using ".@" would return a,b,c,d but you wouldn't know where
the @ was.
> This could probably best be part of the API as a lastSeparator() method that can only
be called after next(), returning the separator(s) between that token and the previous token.
