We are trying to parse data received in vCard2.1 format and populate several value objects which are later written to relational database. The vCard data is received as a single long string and to fetch values of different fields we are performing a String#split() operation.
It is observed that lot of GC cycles happen during this time and we were wondering if instead of split(), we could use something else. Like Java's Scanner API.

Question:

1. Will replacing split() calls with Scanner APIs reduce the number of objects created on heap?
2. Can regex be an option worth considering here?

Thanks.
