    Default replacing last comma in a string with the word "or"

    Hi,

    This is my first post (and probably not my last!). I am just getting back to JSP, JSTL in particular, after being away from minor dabbling in it six years ago. I guess I'm practically a noob, so might as well start of with a good question...

    I have a variable containing the string "a,b,c,d,e."

    I need to replace the last "," with the word "or" (i.e. "a,b,c,d,e" becomes "a,b,c,d or e").

    I know fn:indexOf is probably the best solution, but I have no clue as to the entire syntax of making this happen. Any help is greatly appreciated.


    Thanks,

    Bill

    Default

    You can use String.lastIndexOf() or one of the String.replace(...) with a regular expression. Here is the syntax: String (Java Platform SE 6)
