When i tried to encode the following character literal
" � " ,JVM takes it as unicode and internally converts to a different charset. This char literal needs to be stored as it is.
Can anyone suggest how to handle this.

Please give more detail regarding your problem, if my following guess is not the problem you are seeing.
I have successfully used Strings to contain binary data in a convenient (and Hash-able) form. I would not be able to use it in this manner if it was performing random substitutions. Perhaps you are using a FileReader/FileWriter when you should be using a FileInputStream/FileOutputStream? That would change the character data to UTF-Something or other.
