I wrote a test, and I am afraid that it shows that your books is right.

I am running this program with the following command line:



The program contains the following code:



The word "sue�o" is the Spanish word for "dream". It uses the "�" character, which is not part of the ASCII, but it is part of UTF-8.

If I run this program it prints:



Which means that although I changed the setting of the file encoding to UTF-8, by the time my program manipulated this String, it still did it with ASCII encoding.

Therefore, the setting from the command line prevailed over the one provided programatically. Just as your book said.

yaa
i got the answer.i was mis-writing the program.
with setPropety() and command line ,setProperty() works.
but with getPrioeirty(key,defValue) which sets only inital-default value,
command line parameter overrides it
thank you much
