Description Philippe Mouawad 2017-07-29 14:17:54 UTC
RandomStringUtils is deprecated since commons-lang3-3.6
Comment 1 Philippe Mouawad 2017-09-02 21:29:38 UTC

Not sure it's a good idea for now.
My understanding is that it may incur additional objects creation for builders particularly for RandomString from a set of chars.

Recoded as of commons-text-1.1, it would be something like:
final String lcharsToUse = charsToUse;
myValue = new RandomStringGenerator.Builder()
                    .filteredBy(c -> lcharsToUse.indexOf(c) >= 0)

Version 1.2 has a selectFrom() 

But anyway, AFAIU this consumes more objects than RandomStringUtils.

Am I wrong ?

Maybe wait for next versions of commons-text:
