It's very dangerous to be on 1.4 - you are missing many years of essential security fixes (not to mention language enhancements). Your computer is at risk. You really should update to 1.7 immediately

Great advice

since a lot of companies haven't switched to 7 yet, version 6 I can understand, but as JamesCherrill says: it's risky.

anyway, you may want to try the indexOf method


fair point.
@raviaaaa: You really should update to 1.7 (or the latest version sanctioned by your college/employer) immediately

@stultuske, java has been exposed to having many flaws, leading to a great number of malware infections, which is still on the rise due to Java not being updated on many PC's. But I guess as lonh as you have a Good AV even though a virusmay use an exploit fom Java 6 the AV will catch it, but why risk it I guess is the question
