Hi,
As of now the search textbox is not allowing any thing other than alphabets. So, before posting a new question, if we want to search whether that is already available or not, we are not able to do it. please atleast allow java operators such as . (dot), > , < , + ... in this textbox. This will prevent posting repeated questions.
Thanks.

I think you're unlikely to find any satisfying results by searching threads with these symbols only. Unless you can refine your search using other keywords.

I agree that it would be nice to be able to search for things like "JAX-WS" or "<String>", so I've added it to the http://faq.javaranch.com/java/SoftwareEnhancementIdeasAndSuggestions page. No guarantees as to when someone gets around to implement that, though.

I thought that Deepika wanted to look for operators, not for symbols included in strings.

Hi Christophe,
I wanted to look for System.out.println postings, which i couldnt do due to the . symbol.
Thanks.

Did you try searching just System out println (without the dots) ?
From a quick scan of the results on the first page, only 5 weren't about System.out.println.
