The substring method of String is very useful in Core Java Programming. It is a fundamental method in performing String manipulation. What it does is extract a sequence of characters from a String and return that as a new String object. This post will show examples on how to use the Java substring method.
There are cases where we need to guarantee the width of a String. If the width is less than the target, we can pad the String to meet the required length. Here are some example Java codes on how to Left Pad String With Spaces to guarantee the length of a String.
Here are some example Java codes on how to Left Pad String With Zeroes to guarantee the length of a String. For example, if there are only 3 characters in a String and we wish to have it 10 characters long, we need to pad 7 zeroes to the left of the String.
There are cases when we need to Convert a Java Integer To Fixed Length String. The logic should append a certain character, usually blank or zero, to fill the missing characters when the number of digits is less than the required number of characters.
The split method of the Java String class splits the given string into substrings given a delimiter. The result is an array of String. We may specify the maximum number of items returned by using specifying the limit. Java String Split Limit examples will be shown below.
The String.split() method splits a String into an array of substrings given a specific delimiter. If we know that each substring represents a number or an integer, we may prefer to convert the output of String.split() into an array of integer.
