Subject [jira] [Commented] (LANG-1108) Function to replace multiple whitespaces by a character and trim
Date Fri, 03 Apr 2015 19:18:52 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LANG-1108?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14394956#comment-14394956

Benedikt Ritter commented on LANG-1108:
---------------------------------------

Hello Marco,

what would the proposed API look like? {{StringUtils.replaceWhitespacesAndTrim(str, "_")}}
isn't really much shorter than writing it directly using replace and trim...

> 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()
