Sebb commented on LANG-890:


In that case, I think this issue should be closed as Won't Fix - I cannot see the point of adding a specific method.

The class is already so large that it's easy to overlook methods!

> Currently, no java uitility package offers a method to compare two strings which differ only in format & white spaces for equality. The common scenario when we need such a method would be (a) when one needs to perform equality check between two narrative fields in a SWIFT message or (b) to compare a paragrapgh retreived from different files.
> Please advise on how i can share the code for this new method. thank you
