In automation interviews or in real time projects, its common to encounter a situation where we need to perform few string split operations. In this article, you are going to learn how to split a string with different examples.

String split(String regex)

String split(String regex, int limit)

1st argument: Here regex is separator. Based on this factor a string will be split. For example in the string “selenium java tutorials”, all three words are separated by a space. So if we give space as regex in the function, we will get an array of strings.

2nd argument: limit is used to define the maximum number of splits.
