Available Character Encodings

DeltaWalker supports the same wide-range of character encodings supported by the Java 2 Platform, Standard Edition, v. 1.6 or newer. A non-exhaustive list of encodings follows.

The first column in both tables contains the names of the encodings, a.k.a. canonical names, that DeltaWalker uses. When an encoding has an alternative name, it is listed in the second column of the tables. Although the alternative names are being gradually phased out, they are listed here as many people may be familiar with them. The third column gives a brief description of each.
