StringTokenizer Example

StringTokenizer in java.util package is very useful for spliting the length string into the pieces. You can pass a delimeter to the StringTokenizer constructor to split the string where ever that delimeter appeared in the string. If you have not passed any delimeter, by default it splits the string using the empty space in the string. You can iterate the splited strings using the methods hasMoreTokens() and nextToken(). Lets look at the below example that demonstrates the use of StringTokenizer class.

StringTokenizer Example

package javabeat.net.core;

import java.util.StringTokenizer;

public class StringTokenizerExample {
	public static void main(String args[]){
		String fullString = "Compressing and, Uncompressing of the files, is one of the common utility";
		StringTokenizer tokenizer = new StringTokenizer(fullString);
		System.out.println("Split by Space!");
		while (tokenizer.hasMoreTokens()){
			System.out.println(tokenizer.nextToken());
		}
		tokenizer = new StringTokenizer(fullString,",");
		System.out.println("Split by Comma(,)!");
		while (tokenizer.hasMoreTokens()){
			System.out.println(tokenizer.nextToken());
		}

	}
}

Output for the above example will be:

Split by Space!
Compressing
and,
Uncompressing
of
the
files,
is
one
of
the
common
utility
Split by Comma(,)!
Compressing and
 Uncompressing of the files
 is one of the common utility
