You would benefit from a trip to the Java™ Tutorials, where you find that . is a meta-character (not in this instance an operator) matching almost anything. You will also find out how you can escape that character with the backslash character, so it does what you want.

If you've read that link Campbell gave you you would have seen that "." is a meta character in regular expressions that means "any character".

The split method takes in a regular expression as the argument, you must use one.

use below code to split string , which has '.' as delimit

String valore = "aaa.bbb.ccc.dddd" ;
for ( String result : valore.split("\\.") ) {
System.out.println(result);
}
