    I've a string.
    search = "Empty Jars$@$301". I need to split the string on "$@$"

    String arr[] = search.split("[$@$]");

    the array is something like this

    arr = (Empty Jars, , ,301)

    I dont know y i am getting 2 blank spaces. there are no white spaces or new line chars in the string..

    The split function takes a regular expression. The dollar sign means "end of line". You'll have to escape it using two backslashes in order to mean literally "dollar sign".
