I have defined String Buffer of 2K capacity. Server is send me data withing that capacity of string Buffer. After StringBuffer recieves data from the server on client side, I want to parse it. I have delimeter ":" to parse the stringBuffer?
I tried to use StringTokenizer, Substring. But I can't get it.
Here is my example:
import java.applet.Applet;
import java.util.*;
public class sbDemo extends Applet{
StringBuffer sb;
StringTokenizer st;
public void init(){
st = new StringTokenizer(sb,":");
System.out.println("The String is --->" + st.nextToken());

Angela: modify your code as follows:
st = new StringTokenizer(sb.toString(),":");
StringTokenizer takes arguments of type String, not StringBuffer...

I agree. Here's the link:
