i have a image path name like
C:\Documents and Settings\User\My Documents\My Pictures\IIA\Metadata\TestingData\0060.jpg

and i store it in db (using hsqldb) during execution

but when i read the value back .. it returns it like this, with double backslash -

C:\\Documents and Settings\\User\\My Documents\\My Pictures\\IIA\\Metadata\\TestingData\\0060.jpg

is it right? or how can i access it so that it returns me path like i stored it .. and not with double backslash .. ??

It probably needs to escape it to store it. Do a replaceAll on it

path = path.replaceAll("\\\\\\\\", "\\\\");

i did as shown below.. but replaceAll.. doesn't seem to work..

>>It probably needs to escape it to store it
is it for storing in DB u mean?
String regex = "\\";
String replacement = "\'";
		
String temp = imageIDdata.instance(0).toString();
temp = temp.replaceAll(regex, replacement);
log.info(temp);

thanks :)

do u think, if the path is smaller or longer, the replaceAll expression will still work without any changes .. i cudn't decode how it is replacing \\ with \ - replaceAll("\\\\\\\\", "\\\\")
