    Default Analyze a string of words

    Hi, I'm coding a small GUI app that analyze a string of words.
    It counts the number of words and the longest words length.
    I'm currently using indexOf() and substring() methods to find the first word in the string, but I am lost on how to get the second words and so on extracted.
    Any ideas for this?

    The simplest way would be to store the un-tokenised string of words in a string then use the split(" "); method of String to get an array of the words this then allows you to loop the array looking for the longest and also provides the word count as this is the array size.

    Hope this helps matey.
