int count(String s, char ch)
{
  int count = 0;
  int start = 0;
  while (-1!=(start=s.indexOf(ch, start)+1))
  {
     count++;
  }
}

Hey TLTEO,

    I guess this can be tried.

    StringTokenizer strtok = new StringTokenizer(str,";");
                               //str is your string with ;
    strtok.countTokens(); //This will return the no of tokens;

     you can give more than one delimiter in stringtokenizer constructor in that case probably you cant get an individual count of tokens.


bye,
Sobhan

using stringtokenizer gives one count more

try this
static int getCount(String s, String s1)
{
 int count = 0;
 int start = 0;
 while (s.indexOf(s1 ,start)!=-1)
 {
     count++;
     s= s.substring(s.indexOf(ch)+s1.length());
 }
 return count;
}

Oh great.  You are absolutely right, there is one count more.  Maybe I just minus 1 fro the result.
But for cleaner look will use this
