I am using the String split method and I want to have the last element. The size of the Array can change.

Example:

String one = "Düsseldorf - Zentrum - Günnewig Uebachs"
String two = "Düsseldorf - Madison"

I want to split the above Strings and get the last item:

lastone = one.split("-")[here the last item] // <- how?
lasttwo = two.split("-")[here the last item] // <- how?

I don't know the sizes of the arrays at runtime :(

  1. lastIndexOf()

String[] bits = one.split("-");

String lastOne = bits[bits.length-1];

  1. length

String last = string.substring(string.lastIndexOf('-') + 1);
