how to parse unicode in java from google REST response
Posted on 2011-02-21
i am using the google REST service in my java program to get search results.
the only part i am having trouble with is the reply from google has unicode markup in it. this is an example URL passed back from Google:
i could easily write my own method that checks for unicode and replaces it with the 'human' characters, but this is only practical so long as there are only a very limited number of unicode characters that google will use.
any ideas of a better way to do this? can java parse unicode?
