    hi all

    I have a var of String type
    the string include double inverted commas (") and I need to replace it
    into slash double inverted commas (\")

    original: "abc"de"
    result: "abc\"de"

    that problem came because I got the string from the databse and I need
    the string to make a query from the databae comparing as is but the
    all parse is illegal without change my string

    thanks all

  2. If I were better with regex I could probably do this in one step :).

    public class test8 {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
    String str = "\"abc\"def \"13s\"";
    str = str.replaceAll("\"","\\\\\"");
    str = str.replaceAll("^\\\\\"(.*)\\\\\"$","\"$1\"");
