search error

Java application:
After I put a cursor in a search field (String) and click on space bar, I got an error: my WHERE clause with LIKE stops working. I use a delimiter(" ") in this search.
What is a solution of this problem: how I can capture a white space and return "No records available"?
Thank you for your help.

Hi coPilot,

You should validate input string after split it before making a query by using LIKE.

After you split it, you should validate it one by one. If there is no valid search string, you just return the "No records available"

Hope this help,

Why would you do that? Surely if you do, you'd want it to return *all* records? If so, you should see that your program does just that

Either you need to do as CEHJ suggested or add javascript validation to make sure that empty string is not send across
