Description
Our customer, Nokia Siemens Networks(JFB customer), is asking whether we support Big5 HKSCS-2004 in JDK1.6

From what we've checked in http://java.sun.com/javase/7/docs/technotes/guides/intl/encoding.doc.html and http://java.sun.com/javase/7/webnotes/updates/encodings.html, JDK7 doesn't support Big5 HKSCS-2004. So we doubt it has supported on JDK1.6

Do we have any plan to support Big5 HKSCS-2004?

Stephen Fitch replied:

Please log an RFE - no promises - but I will get the RFE evaluated for us
and NSN.

BTW. Please send me the case details on this.

Again, there are no promises, but I'll get us an eval.

EVALUATION

The plan is to support HKSCS-2004 in JDK7. Technically since HKSCS-2004 uses codepoints only defined in Unicode 4.1, "we" don't have the "obligation" to support this charset in JDK6u, which is officailly only supports Unicode 4.0. But we definitely can do it on a case by case base.
