Split String in Java
Splits a string into parts based on a regex (usually a space) and stores it into an String array.
String splitString = bigString.split(regex);
The regex is a string used to determine where to split the bigger string. For example, to extract individual words from a sentence, a space would be used as a regex.
An optional integer can be passed as a second parameter to limit the number of strings returned.
String pets = "dog,cat"; String petsArray = pets.split(","); //will split names using comma as delimiter System.out.println(petsArray); //will output "dog"
