The Apache Commons Lang software library provides a host of helper utilities for the java.lang API, notably String manipulation methods, basic numerical methods, object reflection, concurrency, creation and serialization and System properties.

- RandomStringUtils - Helper for creating randomised Strings.
- NumberUtils - Helper for java.lang.Number and its subclasses.

- ObjectUtils - Helper for java.lang.Object.
- SerializationUtils - Helper for serializing Objects.
- SystemUtils - Utility class defining the Java system properties.
- NestedException package - A sub-package for the creation of nested exceptions.
