Most efficient method to compare strings
I need to find an efficient method of comparing each character in one string to each character in another string.
So for example, I will have a fixed 10 character string and I will want to compare it to each form field that is included in an HTTP request. As I cycle through the fields I will be doing the comparison.
This will be done many times so I want to have as little overhead as possible.
BTW I am using Java 2 - v1.3.1, so I do not have access to the regex package which came out with 1.4.
The only way that comes to mind would be as efficient as anything. Iterate through the parameters and use .equals() or .equalsIgnoreCase() to compare their values to your string.
