Posted on March 27, 2015 by in Latest Releases

Release 1.6.0 of Norconex Commons Lang provides new Java utility classes and enhancements to existing ones:

New Classes


Use TimeIdGenerator when you need to generate numeric IDs that are unique within a JVM. It generates Java long values that are guaranteed to be in order (but can have gaps).  Can generate up to 1 million unique IDs per milliseconds. Read Javadoc.


A new class for reading large text, one chunk at a time, based on a specified maximum read size. When a text is too large, it tries to split it wisely at each paragraphs, sentences, or words (whichever one is possible). Read Javadoc.


An alternate version of Java and Apache Commons ByteArrayOutputStream. Like the Apache version, this version is faster than Java ByteArrayOutputStream. In addition, it provides additional methods for obtaining a subset of bytes ranging from zero to the total number of bytes written so far. Read Javadoc.


IOUtil enhancements
