Hi,

  I have an OutputStreamWriter object, I need to convert this object to a FileOutputStream(or OutputStream) object, so I can pass the this object to Properties.store method.

Someone knows how to do it ?

Thanks

Richard

Hi,

  I need to create an OutputStream with encoding, OutputStream object itself doesn't allow u to put encoding, so I need to create OutputStreamWriter with encoding first, then pass that object to store...

Any suggestion ?

The Properties class only understands a particular format, Latin 1 encoding, with non-ascii charaters converted to unicode format (\uxxxx).
So the short answer is you can't use a specified encoding to save (or load) properties files.

There is a tool available from Sun (native2ascii) which convert Unicode-encoded files to native-encoded and visa versa:
