Eclipse Tips

Text File Character Encoding

Rationale: Non-ASCII characters should be avoided in source code but sometimes they are necessary (e.g., a German resource bundle in XML format). I recommend setting the character encoding to UTF-8 for all text files to ease future reuse and cross platform development. AFAIK the default setting in Eclipse on Windows is Cp1252.

_Warning:_ Java expects simple properties files in ISO 8859-1 character encoding
