Use of <fn:split(String, String)> and <fn:join(String, String)> Tag of JSTL

     

In this section we will learn how to use <fn:split>and <fn:join> Tag of JSTL. These tags are used to split and join the specified string according to the given delimeter.

<fn:split> It splits a string into an array of sub strings on the basis of specified delimeter.
<fn:join> It joins all elements of an array into a string with the specified separator.

Syntax :
java.lang.String[] split(java.lang.String, java.lang.String)

java.lang.String join(java.lang.String[], java.lang.String)
