      Description

      Hi,

      I would like to see a new method added to ArrayUtils which checks if an array is
      empty or null. This method could look like this:

      /**

      • <p>Checks if an array is empty or null.</p>
        *
      • @param array the array to check, may be null
      • @return <code>true</code> if the array is empty or null
        */
        public static boolean isEmpty(final Object[] array) {
        return (array == null) || (array.length == 0);
        }

      is it possible to add such a method?

      thanks
      Maarten Coene

        I've add null tests for the testIsEmpty methods.

        I have already added the method - and their primitives counterpats. The code is
        not yet commited however, I'll commit it later if no one objects.

        and is it also possible to add the same method for the primitive type arrays ?

        thanks,
