Hello maha, What is unicode charcter datatype?How can I find the unicode representation for Particular esacpe sequence or number and also the difference between ascii character and unicode with suitable examples.did java support ascii characters.
All characters in Java are stored internally as 16-bit Unicode characters. Some books about Java (like Peter van der Linden's JUST JAVA 2) have a table at the back that maps between Latin-1 ISO and Unicode.

I forgot, the first 128 (127?) characters in Unicode map directly to 7-bit ASCII (but still occupy 16 bits).
