I was facing a problem while dealing with the i18n issues in regard to UTF-7. I was working on conversion to and from UTF-7 character set using java. However it seems that UTF-7 is not one of the supported encodings for java. The ByteToChar class for UTF-7 also seems to be missing in i18n.jar.

Are UTF-7 and ASCII charactersets almost the same?  Or is their any reason for not including it in java.  Plus are there any work arounds.

In case you have any advice as to how to deal with the issue please let me know.

Thanx in advance.
