J2ME and Unicode

javaIf you've ever run into problems faced with multi-lingual text differences, Jason's latest article will solve just that.  Learn how to make use of Unicode character-sets when developing in a J2ME-based environment, where you'll more than likely have a need to develop MIDlets in multiple languages.

J2ME and Unicode - Simple Unicode Test
(Page 3 of 6 )

Now that everything is “Unicode ready”, let’s test everything out using the famous Hello World example:

Source Code:

import javax.microedition.lcdui.*;
import javax.microedition.midlet.*;

public class SimpleUnicodeTest extends MIDlet {
   Display display;     
   Form form = null;
   StringItem msg = null;
   public SimpleUnicodeTest() {  
   public void startApp() { 
       display = Display.getDisplay(this);
       msg = new StringItem("'Hello World' in Japanese","u3053u3093u306Bu3061u306Fu4E16u754C");
       form = new Form("Unicode Test");

   public void pauseApp() {}
   public void destroyApp(boolean unconditional) {}

The output of our Hello World MIDlet should look like the following:

See “Reference Section” for the online web tools I used to convert Hello World to  and from  to u3053u3093u306Bu3061u306Fu4E16u754C.
