Charset compareTo() method in Java with Examples

The compareTo() method is a built-in method of the java.nio.charset compares two charsets with each other. A comparison is done by their canonical names, without regard to case.

Syntax:

public final int compareTo?(Charset second)

Parameters: The function accepts a single mandatory parameter second which specifies the charset to be compared with.



Return Value: The function returns an integer value which can be negative, positive or zero after comparing both the offsets.

Below is the implementation of the above function:

        // First charset
        Charset first = Charset.forName("UTF16");
  
        // Second charset
        Charset second = Charset.forName("UTF-8");
  
        // Compares and print
        System.out.println(first.compareTo(second));
