CastMap tools (and JDBC assignment)

I do not like a title of spaces only therefore I 'trimmed' strings and this is already available in 'CastMap':
public String getTrimmedString( String key )
String returnVal = null ;
String s = (String)get( key );
if ( s == null )
returnVal = null ;
returnVal = s.trim();
return returnVal ;
Isn't it just as clear if one would replace
if-else because of initialization of 'returnVal'
if( s != null)
returnVal = s.trim();

Yes, Peter. It's already been changed but the changed jar file isn't available yet. Good catch.
