Subject Re: Tomcat 7 & regex

+0.5 - I wonder if in some cases - it may be preferable to use a 
property called split which lets the user define the separator which we 
can pass to String.split(). [Which OTOH may be more confusing (yet 
powerful) since the user is using a regex to split get a list of regex]
