    I am using JDK 1.5. I tried to use substring() to extract lastname,
    firstname, fullname, etc. from the following 'sample' string. For some
    reason, the substring() is NOT working right. Please help. Also, what's the
    best way to extract fields from a string (or from a file) like this? java/VB
    Script? PERL? Thanks.String sample = "<a
    href="http://email.people.yahoo.com/py/psEmailVcard.vcf?Pyt=Tps&amp;srch=email&amp;ext=vcard.vcf&amp;FirstName=Bush&amp;LastName=George&amp;FullName=George+Bush&amp;City=Washington&amp;State=DC&amp;Country=US&amp;CountryCode=US&amp;Email=&amp;URL=">vCard</a>";String
    firstName = sample.substring(sample.indexOf("FirstName=") +10,
    sample.indexOf("&amp;LastName"));String lastName =
    sample.substring(sample.indexOf("LastName=") +09,
    sample.indexOf("&amp;FullName"));String fullName =
    sample.substring(sample.indexOf("FullName=") +10,
    sample.indexOf("&amp;City"));.....

    So..
    a) What's it doing?
    b) What do you expect it to do?
    c) Can you provide a *compilable* code example that demonstrates?

    > firstName = sample.substring(sample.indexOf("FirstName=") +10,
    > sample.indexOf("&amp;LastName"));String lastName =
    > sample.substring(sample.indexOf("LastName=") +09,
    > sample.indexOf("&amp;FullName"));String fullName =
    > sample.substring(sample.indexOf("FullName=") +10,
    > sample.indexOf("&amp;City"));.....


    And as an aside.. Please refrain from compacting code like this,
    it makes it very hard to read (and does not make it 'short')..

    It gives "String index out of range" error. It seems as if '&amp;' is not
    recognized by String.indexOf(), or anything with ';' in front, for that
    matter. If I use '&amp' (without ';'), as in

    firstName = sample.substring(sample.indexOf("FirstName=") +10,
    sample.indexOf("&amp"));

    it only worked with the firstName

    if I use

    String lastName = sample.substring(sample.indexOf("LastnameName=") +10,
    sample.indexOf("FullName="));

    it gives "String index out of range" error.

    Thanks.

    Hi!
    Have a look at the Java API.
    The method throws an IndexOutOfBoundsException, if either
    endIndex<beginIndex, beginIndex is negative or if endIndex >
    sample.length().

    So probably your beginIndex is too high (you add +10...)
    Probably one String is not found, then indexOf returns -1, if I remember
    correct and this would cause an IndexOutOfBoundsException in substring.

    bye, Ralf

    Perhaps "LastnameName=" is not found... isnt it "Lastname=" ?

    Hello. Can you explain to me why I also got this
    message in my email, from a person who calls
    themselves 'Thomas'? Is that you?

    If yes, I need to make something clear. Do not send me
    email. Posting messages to Usenet newsgroups should
    not be seen as an invitation to strike up a private
    conversation.

    And while I'm on the subject..
    People will generally have more respect and time for
    somebody who calls themselves by their *own* name.

    If my guess is correct, Peter/Thomas are the same
    person, so one name has to be ..wrong.

    People might have any number of reasons not to
    use their own name, when posting to a public
    forum (for fear of racism or sexism, for example),
    but please choose *one* name and stick to it.

    Even more importantly, please do not use a name
    that implies you are from a *different* culture/race/sex
    than what you actually are.

    If you wish to use a false name, please make it an
    *obviously* false name - so that people do not jump
    to the wrong conclusions about the words and
    concepts that you will understand.

    Hmm, that's a good question. I assumed the answer would be "use
    java.net.URL" but there's no way to parse the query string. You can use
    getQuery() to get the whole thing, which seems a bit safer than your method.

    You can look at this code. It has a trace option at the top. I set it to
    true. It will do what you want but I am not happy with it. I think I can
    clean it up and make it tighter. Anyway, here ya go:

    public class Parsetest
    {
    static boolean trace = true;
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
    String sample = "<a href="

    + ">vCard</a>";
    String firstName = "", lastName = "", fullName = "";
    String city = "", state = "", country = "", countryCode = "",
    email = "";

    sample = sample.replace("&amp", "");
    sample = sample.replace("=", " ");
    String[] token = sample.split(";");
    int i = 0;

    for (i = 0; i < token.length; i++){
    if (trace)
    System.out.println("Queued (length, value) " +
    token.length() + " "+ token);

    if (token.length()> 3 &
    token.substring(0, 4).equals("City")){
    city = token.substring(4).trim();
    } else if (token.length()> 4 &
    token.substring(0, 5).equals("Email")){
    email = token.substring(5).trim();
    } else if (token.length()> 4 &
    token.substring(0, 5).equals("State")){
    state = token.substring(5).trim();
    } else if (token.length()> 6 &
    token.substring(0, 7).equals("Country")){
    country = token.substring(7).trim();
    } else if (token.length()> 7 &
    token.substring(0, 8).equals("LastName")){
    lastName = token.substring(8).trim();
    } else if (token.length()>7 &
    token.substring(0, 8).equals("FullName")){
    fullName = token.substring(8).trim();
    fullName = fullName.replace("+", " ");
    } else if (token[i].length()> 8 &
    token[i].substring(0, 9).equals("FirstName")){
    firstName = token[i].substring(9).trim();
    } else if (token[i].length() > 9 &
    (token[i].substring(0, 10).equals("CountryCode"))) {
    countryCode = token[i].substring(11).trim();
    } else
    if (trace)
    System.out.println("Not Used: " + token[i]);
    }
    // test
    System.out.println("firstName: " + firstName);

    clean it up and make it tighter. Anyway, here ya go. This may get you
    started in the right direction.

    Here is test output with trace of the data you submitted in you message:
    passing.

    That works for ..me.

    But I realised after I made that post that what is
    'obviously false' to one person, might not be obvious
    to another (especially someone from a different culture) -
    and my idea was inherently flawed because of that.

    (sighs) ..oh well.
