Harshad Oak provides an overview of the Jakarta Commons project and shows how the Lang component can simplify and accelerate Java development.
Quote: "Components like Lang are easy to use and very useful to a Java beginner as well
as an advanced Java user. If you need star endorsements before you adopt a technology, try this: Search
for commons-lang*.jar in the directory where you keep your Java software. You
will be surprised. Tomcat, Struts, Hibernate, Spring, and WebWork are just some of the
popular Java projects that make use of Lang."
