Super Easy Password Generator!

Real quick here. I needed to generate a random string for auto generated passwords. So I was thinking that I was going to have to write some stupid block of code to randomly select characters out of an array.

However, I stumbled upon org.apache.commons.lang.RandomStringUtils.

Then there was this rad method there: RandomStringUtils.random(int len, String chars)


RandomStringUtils.random(8, "abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ1234567890");

Exactly what I needed! Thanks Apache Commons for being so RAD!

Go write some code!
