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());

Hi Angela
A couple of observations about the code you posted. Firsty, you need to create the StringBuffer object before you try to call the append() method, so do something like:
<code>sb = new StringBuffer();</code> before the call to append().
Also, the constructor to the StringTokenizer takes a String as its first argument, so you need to amend the line where you try to create it to read:
<code>st = new StringTokenizer(sb.toString(),":");</code>
If you still have problems, come back and describe what happens when you attempt to compile and run your code.
Hope this helps
