    Default Spliting a string (45 Characters)


    I'm trying to use the substring() method in order to split a string depending on how many characters it contains.

    The String is normally 285 characters and i would like to split it and create a possible variable out of it.

    In each variable i want to save 45 characters starting bei: 0 till the end of the String... id do have this simple code which is really not profesioneel and i would like to create the variables which are possible dynamically. it must be possible with for or while, but i really can't get it, as i'm not really a profi in java/Jsp.

    Would anybody be so kind and help me please?:)

    XML Code:
            String s1 = "Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry";
            String countSrt1;
            String countSrt2;
            String countSrt3;
            String countSrt4;
            //out.println("\"" + s1 + "\"" + " is " + s1.length() + " characters long.");
            if(s1.length()<= 285){
               countSrt1 = s1.substring(0, 45);
               out.println("<b>The first String: </b>" + countSrt1 + "<br><br>");
               countSrt2 = s1.substring(countSrt1.length(), 90);
               out.println("<b>The second String: </b>" + countSrt2 + "<br><br>");
               countSrt3 = s1.substring(91, 135);
               out.println("<b>The third  String: </b>" + countSrt3 + "<br><br>");
               countSrt4 = s1.substring(136, 180);
               out.println("<b>The fourth String: </b>" + countSrt4 + "<br><br>");
    I tried it with a for/while, but i'm getting an error which i can't solve.:confused:

    Many Thanks

    the string s1 has a length of 319 chars, so your if-statement (s1.length()<= 285) will not become true.
