Hi, I am working to encode a multilingual String (English, chinese, japanese, Latin etc) as unicode. The encoded string is used as follows
1)decoded by the User Interface for display purpose. The user interface is a web UI and
2)read by user. So it should be human readable when it contains only English and special characters.
Thus having a string that contains letters from English, Japanese, CHinese etc, we want the Japanese/Chinese characters to be encoded by the hex values such as 私 be encoded as %E7%A7%81.
However, it is preferable that other special characters like ! ? , space etc not be encoded and left as such.
The encoding of characters is achievable by using Java.net.URLEncoder but it also replaces all special characters including space character, which becomes a pain for the reader.
Unfortunately URLEncoder.java does not have any API to configure which characters to encode. Any suggestions how I can proceed, or what encoder i can use?
Even I am working on something like this.
I am trying to store some chinese charcters in a file and display the same on JSP page. No clue.
Alternate option is to store the unicode format into the file and decode it on JSP. Again, no clues.
