Split string Apex

Need to split a string by first occurence of specific character like '-' in 'this-is-test-data'. so what i want is when i do split it will return ‘this’ in zero index and rest in first index.

Answer

Use String.split(regExp, limit) method:

Documentation says

Returns a list that contains each substring of the String that is
terminated by either the regular expression regExp or the end of the
String.

Example:

String str = 'this-is-test-data';
List<String> res = str.split('-', 2);
System.debug(res);

Result:

15:16:58:001 USER_DEBUG [3]|DEBUG|(this, is-test-data)
