[jira] [Resolved] (LANG-885) Apache commons StringEscapeUtils.unescapeJava(“\\”) returns “”

Sebb resolved LANG-885.

    Resolution: Not A Problem

This is really a question for the user list; JIRA is not a user forum.

None of the unescape methods are documented to throw Exceptions for invalid escape sequences.

> The following code:

> final String INVALID_ESCAPE="\\";
> System.out.println(String.format("'%s' -> '%s'", INVALID_ESCAPE,
>     StringEscapeUtils.unescapeJava(INVALID_ESCAPE)));
> {code}
> ... produces:
> '\' -> ''
> on the console. Since '\' is not a valid escape I would expect an Exception at runtime. Am I missing anything?
