This class is meant to collect static methods for applying simple or more complex operations on strings.
If a String operation requires more than one line of code it should be located in this class for reusability. However it should only be placed in this class, if it really is reusable for other methods and classes. Very content specific operations are therefore excluded from this class or have to be generalized by providing appropriate parameters.
|Version||Change Date||Tested since JRE||Description|
Removed all references to things only available from JRE 1.7 since one client is still running on 1.6 and I need the tool to work on my clients laptop.
In the end I can always use an ant script to compile and package a library for different versions. Its just annoying to do things the old way :0(.
Also added new methods to get current timestamp as string and two methods to concatenate filter and log file strings from SQL resultsets.
