Working with Icelandic character set, really opens up interesting problems from time to time.
Working with REST API against my midp Golf80 score registration client – returning UTF-8 strings, and me now really in shape programming Java … I took the looooong route to finding an answer to how can I read the Http response as UTF-8 (instead of the default ISO-8859-1) … looking for the stream answers and lots of complicated stuff …. the solution was kinda dissappointing 🙂
return new String(message.getBytes(), “UTF-8”);
Just build a new string from the bytes and specify the desired encoding … back to the Lakers-Heat game live 🙂
