Thursday Code Puzzler: Longest Common Subsequence
Thursday is code puzzler day here at DZone. The idea is simple: solve the coding problem as efficiently as you can, in any language or framework that you find suitable.
Note: Even though there really is nothing stopping you from finding a solution to this on the internet, try to keep honest, and come up with your own answer. It's all about the participation!

Longest Common Subsequence
The LCS of two groups is the longest group that are common between both and in the same order in each group. Let's look at an example:
Group A: dzone puzzles
Group B: dropzone
The LCS here is dzone
Group A: 1234
Group B: 12222354
If you're still confused, there's a good explanation over at Wikipedia.
What you need to do in this challenge is write a method that identifies the LCS between two String parameters.
