    need a little help

    I need to get a sentence to capitalize the first letter of each word. Example: input would look like "abstract window toolkit" and I need the output to be "Abstract Window Toolkit". And if possible use a class method while doing it. I've been trying to do it by using the indexOf() and substring() functions but i cant figure it out.

    Use the StringTokenizer class:

    http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.3/docs/ap...Tokenizer.html

    ...and then capitalize the first letter of each token.

    I prefer using split to tokenize. It's easier i find

    String[] tokenHolder = whateverString.split(" ");

    Then you will have tokenHolder array with each tokens occupying each slots.

    Sure, it's just that it was only introduced in 1.4 - my IDE is fixed to 1.3.
