Hi, I have a number of .java files which contain such characters as '。', stopping the eclipse compiler from compiling the files.

How can I solve this issue?

Thanks.

If you're not sure which, try utf-8

right click on the file and select Properties
goto Text file encoding in Respource section, check "Other" and select the appropriate encoding (probably UTF8)

the other alternative is to use native2ascii to encode the strings
and by moving them into properties files makes it easier to manage
there a good plugin that handles the conversion for you

String str = "va'l";
URLEncoder.encode(str, "ISO-8859-1");

Use like above example to encode the character and use it..

That's not for setting the encoding of source code. You need to set the encoding for the whole editor
