My string looks as follow:

str = "fist second  third     forth         fifth";

Can I use split() to split it into 5 sub strings, i.e. without containning the spaces?

This is it:

        String tmp = "Hello  world   over    there";
        String parts[] = tmp.split("[ ]+");

Or simply just use java.util.StringTokenizer like this:

StringTokenizer st = new StringTokenizer("fist second  third     forth         fifth");
     while (st.hasMoreTokens()) {
         System.out.println(st.nextToken());
     }

StringTokenizer is a legacy class that is retained for compatibility reasons although its use is discouraged in new code.
It is recommended that anyone seeking this functionality use the split method of String or the java.util.regex package instead.
