I was just posting a question regarding the java.lang.String.split() method when I figured out that I was using 1.3 and it's only available in 1.4. So that leaves me the question of whether there is some way to do this (split a comma separated list into an array) in 1.3 other than manually write my own function to do it. Anyone got a quick solution?
Ben You'll want to check out the StringTokenizer class. It'll give you an enumeration that you can iterate over and store into an array. There may be another way out there but this was the first that came to mind. hope that helps

You know it's kind of funny how sometimes the problem isn't the language... One method was reading a recordset and dumping the information in a string, then the other was converting from a string to array. Duh...I hadn't even written the first yet, so I just rethought it and made it return String instead. Solved all my conversion problems and works great. Thanks for the suggestions though.
