I am trying to tokenize a String that contains HTML tags. Can anyone help me with that?

Any hints will be appreciated.

To tokenize your string, you might try the split(...) method of the String class. It takes a regular expression as its argument, so you might want to look up the java documentation on regular expressions. A helpful link that I found is this regex recipes pdf file.

There is also a StringTokenizer class, but its use in code is no longer recommended by Sun.

Round these parts, posting the same question in multiple forums is bad practice. It can make it rather difficult to follow a conversation, plus folks spend time saying things that were just said.

Please continue this conversation in the duplicate thread. I'm closing this thread.
I agree. Here's the link:
