Subject [jira] [Created] (LANG-1108) Function to replace multiple whitespaces by a character and trim
Date Fri, 03 Apr 2015 18:23:53 GMT
Marco Janc created LANG-1108:
--------------------------------

             Summary: Function to replace multiple whitespaces by a character and trim
                 Key: LANG-1108
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LANG-1108
             Project: Commons Lang
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: lang.*
            Reporter: Marco Janc


In form applications where user can input data its very often not wished to have successive
whitespace characters.

A function that will replace multiple whitespace characters with a single space (or passed
string/character) would be a nice feature since I myself repeat this method in many applications.

Something like a shortcut for:

    value.replace("\\s+", " ").trim()
