Subject [jira] [Created] (LANG-1324) StringUtils and null
Date Tue, 25 Apr 2017 10:13:04 GMT
abhijith nagarajan created LANG-1324:
----------------------------------------

             Summary: StringUtils and null
                 Key: LANG-1324
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LANG-1324
             Project: Commons Lang
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: lang.*
    Affects Versions: 3.5
            Reporter: abhijith nagarajan
            Priority: Trivial


This is more of a question which could lead to a minor improvement. I would like to know if
there was a specific reason to return "null" from method stripChars, substringsBetween when
input is null. 

I was always under the impression that Util classes would gracefully handle null (this is
great from commons-lang) and would not return null unless it is very clear from the method's
objective (like stripToNull).

I have the required code change which is small but impact of this change would be high as
we do not know what could break as this library usage is pretty common in all the java projects.
