Hi, and (anyway) thanks for your time.
Maybe I'm not completely seeing what's going on in my sw because I obtain a different behavior from the same method running in two different machines: first one w/ win xp and the second w/ linux (CentOS).
My method has to split a string like the following:

"2010-08-11 16:55:15,336 123.123.123.123 "Mozilla/5.0 (iPad; U; CPU like Mac OS X; en) AppleWebKit/420+ (KHTML, like Gecko) Release/3.0/12345 asdfghjklpoiu-123" abc 12345678"

I use a regex like this: "\\x20{2,}" in order to obtain tokens that are separated by 2 or more spaces.

Deployed on win xp it works, on linux not (same JVM).

Have you any suggestion.
Again thank you for your time.

Rob

Welcome to JavaRanch.

What exactly do you mean with "it works / it doesn't work"? What is exactly the output that you expect, and what happens in reality - and how do these two differ? Can you show us the source code and the exact difference between the outputs on the two OSes?

Sorry for my poor description of the problem...
This is the code, I implemented a handler compliant with the architecture of Apache-MINA receivers:



On win xp I obtain:

splitString[0] = "2010-08-11"
splitString[1] = "16:55:15,336"
splitString[2] = "123.123.123.123"
splitString[3] = "'Mozilla/5.0 (iPad; U; CPU like Mac OS X; en) AppleWebKit/420+ (KHTML, like Gecko) Release/3.0/12345 asdfghjklpoiu-123'"
splitString[4] = "abc"
splitString[5] = "1234567"

On linux I obtain that the whole string is put in splitString[0]
Thanks

Rob

Are you sure the input string is exactly the same? Is it perhaps not missing spaces that are sent in Windows, so there are no occurrences of 2 or more spaces?

Yes, I'm sure
