Method Detail

isSupported

public static boolean isSupported(java.lang.String name)

Returns whether the named charset is supported.

This is similar to java.nio.charset.Charset.isSupported(String)

Parameters:
name - the name of the requested charset; may be either a canonical name or an alias
Returns:
true if, and only if, support for the named charset is available in the current Java virtual machine
