in thread passing data structures from java to perl

And what has all this got to do with creating UTF-8 output?  I was explicitly talking about UTF-8, not Latin-1.

If you think there's something wrong with what I suggested, please provide a compilable, self-contained sample that demonstrates an UnmappableCharacterException when encoding a unicode string to UTF-8.  Otherwise this is plain FUD.

    Latin-1 was an example my good monk. If someone learned this really bad pattern and one day bumps into Latin-1 (say in a db) it'll explode. It's exactly like using 86400 seconds in a day just 'cause it'll work today.

    I'm not going to test every JDK for you, every character set that the JDK supports to see what blows up. It's assumed that if you do things w/i parameters, it's a bug when it does blow up. Enjoy going on and on. I'm done here.

    Good nite. Good luck.

      There is no bad pattern, that's my point. Encoding unicode data as UTF-8 will not only work today or in one particular case, it will always work.

      But you have to know what you're doing, of course. And someone simply substituting Latin-1 for UTF-8, for me, falls into the category of not knowing what you're doing.
