Java uses the 16-bit Unicode character set.

If you're wondering how you can be as smart as Ernest and figure out the answer to such an inquiry, well... I can at least suggest how to figure out such questions. Take a look at The Java Language Specification (JLS). Section 4.2 holds the answer to this question.
