Hey.
Here are the code for text reading and splitting, it has still some errors. Can you answer?

 my text file has following values: title;a1;40;a2;33;a4;50;

      Here is how I wrote the code, but it doesn't work yet


       String param0 = "";
              try
              {      
                  String url_string = String.valueOf(getParameter("text"));
                  URL a;
                  URLConnection conn;
                  a = new URL(url_string);
                  conn = a.openConnection();
                  conn.setUseCaches(false);
                  DataInputStream dis = new DataInputStream(conn.getInputStream());
                  String inputLine = "";
                  while ((inputLine=dis.readLine())!= null)
                  {
                         param0 =param0 + inputLine;
                  }
                  dis.close();
                 }catch (java.io.IOException e){}
                 java.util.StringTokenizer st  = new java.util.StringTokenizer(param0, ";");
                 while(param0 != null)
                 {
                     if( je==0)
                     {
                      //Firts variable is title
                         title=st.nextToken();
                     }
                    //don't go any more in the string above:
                     je=1;
                   //get labels:
                     labels[i] = st.nextToken();
                   //get values:
                     values[i] = Integer.parseInt(st.nextToken());
                    //drawing color:
                     colors[i] = Color.black;
                    // number of variables:
                     columns=columns+1;
                     if (values[i] > max)
                     {
                         max = values[i];
                     }
                     i++;
                }

Hello 'tittapo',

This is a working example. I've put the test file on my web server.


//file test_tokenizer.java
import java.net.*;
import java.io.*;

public class test_tokenizer
{

  public static void main(String[] argv)
  {
    String param0 = "";
    try
    {        
      String url_string = "http://hermes.cs.utwente.nl:5111/altered_serve/test.txt";
      URL a;
      URLConnection conn;
      a = new URL(url_string);
      conn = a.openConnection();
      conn.setUseCaches(false);
      DataInputStream dis = new DataInputStream(conn.getInputStream());
      String inputLine = "";
      while ((inputLine=dis.readLine())!= null)
        param0 =param0 + inputLine;
      dis.close();
    }
    catch (Exception e)
    {
      e.printStackTrace();
    }
    java.util.StringTokenizer st  = new java.util.StringTokenizer(param0, ";");
    while(st.hasMoreTokens())
    {
      System.out.println(st.nextToken());
    }
  }
}

The basic idea of the tokenizers is calling the nextToken() until hasMoreTokens() returns false. You can linearly call nextToken several times, but it is a good idea to test for hasMoreTokens after each nextToken().

Hope this helped,
  Nik
