Q.  How can I convert a string into tokens?

A.  Java has these classes/methods builtin:

String.split() java.io.StreamTokenizer java.util.StringTokenizer java.util.Scanner
If you want something fancier look for a "lexer". Or look for a parser for the language you are dealing with. eg JSON, XML, RSS etc have parsers.
