StringTokenizer class in Java

Java Programming Java8Object Oriented Programming

The StringTokenizer class of the java.util package allows an application to break a string into tokens.

  • This class is a legacy class that is retained for compatibility reasons although its use is discouraged in new code.
  • Its methods do not distinguish among identifiers, numbers, and quoted strings.
  • This class methods do not even recognize and skip comments.
