Hello,
I would like to parse this String -
dept/software/eng/bob/
 
or
dept/software/eng/


And the result ie the output should only be -
test

It would be great if I can use some taglib to get the last element ie-
bob or eng


Or if you can help me with some Java code to do this please


Thanks
awaiting a response!

String s = "dept/software/eng/bob/";
            
StringTokenizer st = new StringTokenizer( s, "/" );
String last=null;
            
while (st.hasMoreTokens() ) last = st.nextToken();
            
System.out.println( "Last=" + last );
