thanks for your answer.
Do you have overseen, that String#getASCIIBytes(..) and
String#getISO8859_1Bytes(..) was only mentioned as *alternative*?
As I agree, adding methods with specific encoding names to API is bad
design, I would prefer method signatures like getBytes(byte buf, byte
This additionally allows 6-bit ASCII de/encoding.
We could additionally provide static constants: MASK_ISO_8859_1,
Imagine, you have very short Strings. Loading/instantiating charset +
de/encoder instances (by name) takes more time than the de/encoding
itself in current implementation. So there should be additional big
performance gain e.g. for CORBA applications.
