Split string Apex

  • Need to split a string by first occurence of specific character like '-' in 'this-is-test-data'. so what i want is when i do split it will return 'this' in zero index and rest in first index.

  • Use String.split(regExp, limit) method:

    Documentation says

    Returns a list that contains each substring of the String that is terminated by either the regular expression regExp or the end of the String.

    Example:

    String str = 'this-is-test-data';
    List<String> res = str.split('-', 2);
    System.debug(res);
    

    Result:

    15:16:58:001 USER_DEBUG [3]|DEBUG|(this, is-test-data)
