I have a simple question. Do I have to trim() the strings before using it in a select statement?
for example:
String thisString = request.getParameter("some");
thisString = thisString.trim();
or is it irrelevant??

Yes we can do trim function before select
statement.This is very useful code also why because of not all database are not supported to trim function proprty.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
