Re: String tokenizer problem



fixed

I am using "GMT+00:00" (no quotes) as the delimiter.

The String#split method correctly splits the string in to the array
elements using a simple regex:
String[] tokens = text.split("GMT\\+00:00");

The StringTokenizer splits on the first double zero in 2009 and then stops
at the colon in the time next:
StringTokenizer t = new StringTokenizer(text, "GMT+00:00");

The 1st two tokens are:
Sep 29, 2
9 7

Has anyone seen this behavior before? Am I missing something obvious?
StringTokenizer works on characters - not strings.

What you say, is that the characters G, M, T, +, 0 and : are delimiters between tokens, so the first token is from the beginning of the string and up to the first zero (and multiple delimiters are ignored as standard so the second zero is skipped) and then you get the "9 7" up to the colon.

Making sense?
