Application Security Testing: An Integral Part of DevOps

Platform-independent New Line Characters

Because you need to use the new line character in most outputs—and because the line-terminating characters differ on different systems—you need to be able to identify what kind of system you're working on. Thankfully, Java provides a method with which you can retrieve the specific new line character for the type of operating system you're working on.

Use this line of code in your application to retrieve the new line character:

String newLine = System.getProperty("line.separator");
Here, newLine retrieves the appropriate line-terminating character(s) for the current operating system.
