Hi Ranchers,

How do I convert a String from ISO-8859-1 to UTF-8 encoding?

I tried using the CharsetDecoder and CharsetEncoder classes but some special characters like bullets etc are not getting converted properly.

Here is what I have been trying. I hope it makes sense.



Will appreciate any thoughts/suggestions on this.

Thanks in advance,
Basu.

Could you post some code with sample data that shows the problem?
Ie create a string with the problem characters using \uxxxx and then run it thru your code to demonstrate the problem. Print the results and post it.
 
For my next feat, I will require a volunteer from the audience! Perhaps this tiny ad?
