StrMan - String Manipulation Java Library

In every project String is more useful tool and we need to manipulate their value as per our requirement like Camel Case String, Split String, Append value etc.
Then StrMan a String manipulation Java library will help you. How just look at deeply.



To use strman in your application, you have to add strman in your classpath. strman is available on Maven Central so you just need to add dependency to your favorite build tool as show below.

For Apache Maven users, please add following to your pom.xml.

<dependencies>
    <dependency>
        <groupId>com.shekhargulati</groupId>
        <artifactId>strman</artifactId>
        <version>0.2.0</version>
        <type>jar</type>
    </dependency>
</dependencies>
Gradle users can add following to their build.gradle file.
compile(group: 'com.shekhargulati', name: 'strman', version: '0.2.0', ext: 'jar'){
        transitive=true
}
