Subject [jira] [Commented] (LANG-1108) Function to replace multiple whitespaces by a character and trim
Date Sun, 04 Dec 2016 21:27:58 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LANG-1108?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15720630#comment-15720630
] 

Duncan Jones commented on LANG-1108:
------------------------------------

bq. A function that will replace multiple whitespace characters with a single space (or passed
string/character) would be a nice feature

[{{StringUtils.normalizeSpace()}}|http://commons.apache.org/proper/commons-lang/javadocs/api-release/org/apache/commons/lang3/StringUtils.html#normalizeSpace-java.lang.String-]
solves the first part of this problem. Do we need to solve the remainder?

> 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()
