Hi, I'm trying to basically strip a string and only want the content inbetween the () (excluding the brackets). I have posted the code so far, but I'm now a little stuck. What I was trying to do was, using a boolean append to the StringBuffer when it meets the character '(' and stop when it meets an ')'.
The following should do what you ask. String input = "TABLE1(string,contains,some,words)"; int start = input.indexOf( '(' ); int end = intput.indexOf( ')' ); String s = input.substring( start+1, end ); System.out.println( s );
