Please tell me how to do this. I've got a String named schoolName as
String schoolName = "[School][Category][Type]";
I want to convert all those [ in the string to [= and all
tose ] to +]. Please tell me if there is a function to do so. I
understand that i can do so by scanning through the String, but i
need a function that replaces a single character with a string.
Hope i have made myself clear, if not still, please tell me.

// Here is a method that can help your problem

private String replaceText(String orig, char c, String s){
String modified =orig;
while(orig.indexOf(c) != -1){
int index = orig.indexOf(c);
modified = orig.substring(0,index) + s + orig.substring(index+1);
orig = modified;
return modified;
I agree. Here's the link:
