java.util.StringTokenizer.nextToken() Method



The nextToken(String delim) method is used to return the next token in this string tokenizer's string. First, the set of characters considered to be delimiters by this StringTokenizer object is changed to be the characters in the string delim. Then the next token in the string after the current position is returned.


Following is the declaration for java.util.StringTokenizer.nextToken() method.

public String nextToken(String delim)


delim − This is the new delimiters.

Return Value

The method call returns the next token, after switching to the new delimiter set.


NoSuchElementException − This is thrown if there are no more tokens in this tokenizer's string.

      StringTokenizer st = new StringTokenizer("Come/to/learn");

      // checking next token
      System.out.println("Next token is : " + st.nextToken("/"));
