Using RegEx and Java to Split a String in Coldfusion

I was looking for a great way to split a string using a regex expression. Ben Nadel had a good post where he’s creating an RESplit() method. This was a little more than I wanted to go into, and after some more searching I found the solution was to use Java (usually is the solution ;-) as shown by Raymond Camden. So without further discussion, here’s what you need:

// Splitting a query column value by linefeeds
// You could just as easily do this with any RegEx
ItemsArray = myQuery.Notes[1].split( chr(13) );
