Any remarks on 6307387: Add String.endsWithIgnoreCase(String suffix)?
Bug ID 6307387: Add String.endsWithIgnoreCase(String suffix)
This report and suggested implementation came in on the 'jdk-collaboration' channel .
Since this is an RFE rather than a bug fix, the RE (Responsible Engineer: a domain expert in this area) is pushing back on the request. The question is: would this addition would 'carry its own weight'  without adding unused clutter and complexity to the language and the test suite. Of course, making this method part of the API would require adding compatability and functionality tests to cover it.
So: we are interested in starting a discussion here. Would you use String.endsWithIgnoreCase(String suffix), or not? If you could spend a dollar on adding new methods to the next JDK release, how much would you spend on Bug 6307387?
Looking forward to hearing from you-
