---------------------------------

Agreed. I'll come up with some more examples and code snippets to better explain it.

> It would be nice to have a utility class for basic regex operations. Some of the features
that it may contain
> * some basic regex patterns and their application methods
> ** e.g a robust csv parser, or fetch keys and values from key1=value1,key2=value2. Instead
of writing up regexs, one can use these utility methods 
> * apply a pattern on a string
> * retrieve certain groups based on a particular criteria 
> * escape certain characters in a string
> Class can look like 
> {code:title=RegexUtils.java|borderStyle=solid}
>     public static final CSV_SPLITTER_REGEX = "someRobustPattern"
>     public static final String getCsvSplitterRegex(String delimiter){
>         return "delimiterSpecificPattern";
>     }
> {code}
