Invalid escape sequence [message #1268584] Mon, 10 March 2014 17:56 Go to next message

I am trying to set a String path
String server_name = "192.168.5.166\\NLS"

But when I run my app in debug the String is displayed as "192.168.5.166\\NLS" rather than 192.168.5.166\NLS

I am new to Java programming as well as Eclipse. But I did some online research prior to this post and came up with
\b backspace
\t horizontal tab
\n linefeed
\f form feed
\r carriage return
\" double quote
\' single quote
\\ backslash

but as I said when I add the \\ to my string its displaying still as 192.168.5.166\\NLS rather than "192.168.5.166\NLS"

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

Update:

Never mind. During my debug I was looking at the variable before it was actually set. Once the value was set it was setting it correctly.

Thanks
Thomas
