Constructor Detail

StringEscapeUtils

public StringEscapeUtils()

StringEscapeUtils instances should NOT be constructed in standard programming.

Instead, the class should be used as:

StringEscapeUtils.escapeJava("foo");

This constructor is public to permit tools that require a JavaBean instance to operate.


 
Method Detail

escapeJava

public static String escapeJava(String str)
Escapes the characters in a String using Java String rules.

Deals correctly with quotes and control-chars (tab, backslash, cr, ff, etc.)

So a tab becomes the characters '\\' and 't'.

The only difference between Java strings and JavaScript strings is that in JavaScript, a single quote must be escaped.

Example:

 input string: He didn't say, "Stop!"
 output string: He didn't say, \"Stop!\"
 
Parameters:
str - String to escape values in, may be null
Returns:
String with escaped values, null if null string input


escapeJava

public static void escapeJava(Writer out, String str)
Escapes the characters in a String using Java String rules to a Writer.

A null string input has no effect.

throws:
IllegalArgumentException if the Writer is null
throws:
IOException if error occurs on underlying Writer
Parameters:
out - Writer to write escaped string into
str - String to escape values in, may be null
See Also:
escapeJava(java.lang.String)


escapeJavaScript

public static String escapeJavaScript(String str)
Escapes the characters in a String using JavaScript String rules.

Escapes any values it finds into their JavaScript String form. Deals correctly with quotes and control-chars (tab, backslash, cr, ff, etc.)

So a tab becomes the characters '\\' and 't'.

The only difference between Java strings and JavaScript strings is that in JavaScript, a single quote must be escaped.

Example:

 input string: He didn't say, "Stop!"
 output string: He didn\'t say, \"Stop!\"
 
Parameters:
str - String to escape values in, may be null
Returns:
String with escaped values, null if null string input


escapeJavaScript

public static void escapeJavaScript(Writer out, String str)
Escapes the characters in a String using JavaScript String rules to a Writer.

A null string input has no effect.

throws:
IllegalArgumentException if the Writer is null
throws:
IOException if error occurs on underlying Writer
Parameters:
out - Writer to write escaped string into
str - String to escape values in, may be null
See Also:
escapeJavaScript(java.lang.String)


unescapeJava

public static String unescapeJava(String str)
Unescapes any Java literals found in the String. For example, it will turn a sequence of '\' and 'n' into a newline character, unless the '\' is preceded by another '\'.
Parameters:
str - the String to unescape, may be null
Returns:
a new unescaped String, null if null string input


unescapeJava

public static void unescapeJava(Writer out, String str)

Unescapes any Java literals found in the String to a Writer.

For example, it will turn a sequence of '\' and 'n' into a newline character, unless the '\' is preceded by another '\'.

A null string input has no effect.

throws:
IllegalArgumentException if the Writer is null
throws:
IOException if error occurs on underlying Writer
Parameters:
out - the Writer used to output unescaped characters
str - the String to unescape, may be null


unescapeJavaScript

public static String unescapeJavaScript(String str)
Unescapes any JavaScript literals found in the String.

For example, it will turn a sequence of '\' and 'n' into a newline character, unless the '\' is preceded by another '\'.

Parameters:
str - the String to unescape, may be null
Returns:
A new unescaped String, null if null string input
See Also:
unescapeJava(String)


unescapeJavaScript
