Off the top of my head, I see 2 ways of handling this.
1- recursively break the string into its component words, the end condition for the recursion would be that there are no more spaces in the string. Then return an assemblage of capitalized words.
2- use the String.split method to produce an array of individual words, capitalize each one and reassemble.
There are, I'm sure, other ways of doing this.
There exists on the web more example Java code than you could read in the rest of your days, trying looking for what you need.
I agree. Here's the link:
