Welcome to JavaRanch Prajakta Kale
</EDIT>

if you dont want to use predefined spliting mechnism, you need to implement two methods 1. String[] getKeys 2. String[] getValues.

by the way: how do you get only keys as well as only values ?

Welcome to the Ranch

You are right not to use StringTokenizer; use the split() method of String, and try a small limit, maybe 2.

consider a nested pair of splits....

an outer doing a split(",") to separate each of the key value pairs...
for each token
an inner doing a split("=") to separate each key and value
then do a put (key, value)

now watch out..... some of your strings(values) have single quotes. They are already inside a string so the single quotes will be taken in as part of the value string.
