Subject [jira] [Commented] (LANG-1281) Javadoc of StringUtils.ordinalIndexOf is contradictory.
Date Fri, 04 Nov 2016 19:20:59 GMT

ASF GitHub Bot commented on LANG-1281:

Github user aioobe commented on the issue:

    Looks good to me, even though I think it's a terrible idea to view empty strings as some
form of special strings and treat them differently than other strings.

> Javadoc of StringUtils.ordinalIndexOf states the following:
> "The code increments the starting index by one, rather than by the length of the match
string, so matches may overlap."
> But then gives the following example:
> StringUtils.ordinalIndexOf("aabaabaa", "", 2) = 0
> which clearly indicates that it does *not* increment the starting index by one in case
of the empty string.
