Subject [jira] [Commented] (LANG-1019) StringEscapeUtils.escapeXPath()
Date Sun, 22 Jun 2014 21:00:25 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LANG-1019?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14040247#comment-14040247
] 

Sebb commented on LANG-1019:
----------------------------

That should work, but is not very efficient if the input contains multiple single-quotes.

But this still seems out of scope. The escapeXml/Html methods are more generally useful.
This can only be used in XPath where a funtion call (concat) is usable.

> Would be great to create a method that would escape a string for XPath. It is a well
known problem that XPath doesn't have a mechanism for quotes escaping. See for example http://stackoverflow.com/questions/14822153/escape-single-quote-in-xpath-with-nokogiri
> A very good workaround suggested here https://bugs.php.net/bug.php?id=51785
> Would be great to add a method to StringEscapeUtils
