Thrown by String methods to indicate that an index is either negative or greater than the size of the string. For some methods such as the charAt method, this exception also is thrown when the index is equal to the size of the string.

  • In the Jenkins configuration page, under Mercurial installations, I get an exception if I enter this specific text in the Custom Configuration field: {noformat} [x] \: {noformat} There can be any text around these elements, but this appears to be the minimal amount of text that produces the exception. The exception pops as a web page under the field, with Jenkins top header and sidebar, which is kinda weird, too (see attached image). Here's the full text of the exception that is displayed: {noformat} javax.servlet.ServletException: java.lang.StringIndexOutOfBoundsException: String index out of range: 1 at

an effect on anything, and I have an easy workaround, which is to use [:] instead of \: in my regex. The config I was trying to use was this, if you're wondering why I even had that kind of pattern in there: {noformat} [subpaths] (http|https|ssh)(\://.*)/src/(.*) = \1\2-subrepos/\3 {noformat}
