Subject [jira] [Commented] (LANG-1011) Create a new class StringDistance as host for the getXXDistance methods in StringUtils
Date Sun, 01 Mar 2015 12:04:05 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LANG-1011?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14342179#comment-14342179

Benedikt Ritter commented on LANG-1011:
---------------------------------------

Hello Jonathan,

actually this ticket is pretty much outdated. We have created a new component that is focused
on text processing algorithms: http://commons.apache.org/sandbox/commons-text/

If you're interested in this area, you should start there :-)

regards,
Benedikt

> We're getting more and more algorithms that calculate distances between strings, so it
makes sense to create a new class for this kind of logic.
> deprecate getLevenshteinDistance and getJaroWinklerDistance and delegate to the new class.
If the new class is implemented in 3.4, move getFuzzyDistance (is has not yet been released)
