Subject [jira] Updated: (LANG-180) [lang] adding a StringUtils.replace method that takes an array or List of replacement strings
Date Thu, 08 Jun 2006 08:45:31 GMT
     [ ]

Henri Yandell updated LANG-180:

    Bugzilla Id:   (was: 36584)
    Fix Version: 3.0
                     (was: 2.2)

I'm still undecided on this method so moving it with other new feature requests to 3.0.

> I have the situation where I have a String template with a dozen replacements 
> I need to make.  When I loop through and use StringUtils.replace each time, it 
> has to make a StringBuffer of the whole template each time.  I think we could 
> make this more efficient if we had a replace() method which took an array of 
> Strings to search for, and an array of Strings to replace with (or we could 
> use a Collection or List or something).  This way we could possibly do the 
> replace in one StringBuffer result.
> One issue is if the replacement text has Strings to be replaced, do we iterate 
> through again until there are no Strings to search for?  Based on your 
> replaceChars(String str, String searchChars, String replaceChars) method, I 
> assume the answer is no, but we could have a boolean flag to have it both ways.
> I can write this for you if you are interested, please let me know.
