Hello all,

(1) I parsed an XML document containing Chinese characters and got the XML bean as below:



(2) Then I tried to store it in a file as below:



(3) When I open "chineseCharsFile.xml" in a text editor, I'm able to see the Chinese characters, but when I open "newChineseCharsFile.xml" in the same text editor I'm not able to see the Chinese characters.


Any suggestions, please?


Thanks,
Ragu

If you don't specify an encoding when writing files, the platform default encoding will be used - which in all likelihood doesn't support Chinese characters. You can use an OutputStreamWriter wrapped around a FileOutputStream to accomplish this.

Besides the enconding, I suggest you to take a look at XStream framework. It is very useful when you want parse/generate XML to BEAN and vice-versa.

Hello Ulf,

It worked after I wrapped OutputStreamWriter with BufferedWriter.




Thank you,

Just to keep you informed, it is not the BufferedWriter but the OutputStreamWriter that did the trick for you.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
