opencsv 1.7 is a bugfix release restoring JDK 1.4 compatibility, which also add some nice tidyup features to the JDBC exporter (nice time/date formatting, and a fix for a few NPE people were experiencing).
Huge thanks to Sean Sullivan who has done *all* the work preparing this release.
And thanks to our loyal community for their patches. This one includes work by Brigham Stevens, and we've got a stack of cool user-submitted improvements coming in 2.0 which will make the opencsv interface simpler and more powerful. ... read more
This release allows CSVWriter to use a custom line-terminator (useful when exporting a CSV file for use on a different platform). Thanks to Klaus Stafto and Jerry Vos for good work here.
This release also fixes an unusual edge case where quote characters are used in an element, but not in the first position.
Someone send me a patch for this second issue, which I've integrated, but have since lost the original email. Let me know who you are, and I'll add you to the credits.
OpenCSV 1.5 includes changes to CSVWriter to allow for easily exporting a SQL table or query to a CVS file. The new method writeAll(ResultSet rs) makes exporting SQL to CSV a snap!
Thanks to Sean Sullivan for implementing the mods.
