You may want to check the following implementation:

I am not sure what the best place for this is [io], [lang], [codec]?

Subject: [io][lang] CSV parser contribution

Following the discussion about CSV parsing/writing on this list
Netcetera AG would like to contribute a CSV parser to jakarta.

  - configurable delimiter (delimiter may appear in complex values)
  - complex values (including newlines -> multiline values)
  - unicode escapes
  - empty line skipping support
  - comment support
  - hardcoded record separators (\n or \r\n)

According to Simon Kitching, commons-io or commons-lang might be a place
such a simple implementation. If you have any better idea feel free to
hand it 
on inside jakarta.

Source and test code can be found here

It's widely used in our projects and proved to be stable up to today.

Please note that this contribution is dedicated to the Apache Software 
Foundation, thank you for not using it otherwise.
