Which of the following encoding schemes is used by the jvm internally for storing identifiers etc.?
1. Unicode
2. UTF8
4. 8859_1
5. It depends on the platform
I choose 1. because "inside the JVM, where characters are strictly 16-bit Unicode..."(P460 of RHE).
But the JQ+ offer 2 as the correct answer. Could anyone explain the choice? Thanx in advance.
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
