Subject [jira] [Commented] (TEXT-88) WordUtils.capitalizeFully behaves in a counterintuitive manner with empty delimiter array.
Date Mon, 12 Jun 2017 21:28:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TEXT-88?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16047086#comment-16047086

Sebb commented on TEXT-88:
--------------------------

To me a second param of null means "I have not provided any delimiters".
So does omitting the second parameter.
Therefore they should have the same behaviour.

Since the commonest delimiter is whitespace, it's convenient to have that as a default if
no delimiter array is provided.
This is also what the LANG original states in the Javadoc.

> As discussed in TEXT-85, it seems that

> WordUtils.capitalizeFully("i am fine", new char[]{}) // --> i am fine
> {code}
> Both Sebb and Arun think that this is odd and that the letter "i" should have been capitalized
resulting in the output {{I am fine}}
