A Unicode system in the java programming language is a way to represent and support almost all of the well-known languages in the world.

  • It is comprised of a 16-bit character encoding standard.
  • So to support multinational application code this Unicode is represented to it.
  • Some of the characters use single-byte and some of the other characters use two.
