Subject [jira] Commented: (HARMONY-997) String.replaceAll method does not work like RI if replacement string contains a backslash
Date Sun, 30 Jul 2006 23:34:14 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HARMONY-997?page=comments#action_12424453 ] 
Nathan Beyer commented on HARMONY-997:

Do you have some documentation or code to assert that this is a bug in Harmony and not a bug
in the RI? Based on my quick read of the API, it would seem that doing a replacement with
a '\' character, if properly escaped should work. Even if it's not meant to, then a StringIndexOutOfBoundsException
seems like a weird error.

In any case, the underlying difference is in the regex module, so any further examples should
be expressed with the underlying APIs.
