I need to perform some string manipulations somewhat more complicated than just finding an occurence of a string, and simple replacement. (Just examples.) I know there are a lot of methods available "somewhere" in my Java environment, and I am sure there are Java string libraries "out there." But, I don't know how to efficiently search for them.
Question #1 - In general, how should I search for library functions - string and otherwise -
in my Java environment?
Question #2 - Specifically, how can I find what string methods exist in my Java environment?
Question #3 - Please recommend some Java reusable code libraries "out there."
