    Look at the API doc for the String class. It has methods that will help you do that.

    i saw that.. the only methods i can think of that help me is the indexOf method.. but it will only return the 1st occurence.. so for my case the last 'a' will be ignore..

    or for case like the word: "Trustworthy"
    the other 2 't' will be ignored??

    the indexOf method.. but it will only return the 1st occurence
    There is more than one version of the method.
    One returns the first occurrence
    another will return the next occurrence given a starting point.
