The isSupported() method is a built-in method of the java.nio.charset checks if a given charset is supported or not.

Errors and Exceptions: The function throws two exceptions as shown below:  



  • IllegalCharsetNameException: It is thrown if the given charset name is illegal
  • IllegalArgumentException : It is thrown if the given charset Name is null

Below is the implementation of the above function:

Program 1:  

Java




// Java program to demonstrate
// the above function
import java.nio.charset.Charset;
 
public class GFG {
 
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        try {
            System.out.println("ISO-2022-CN"
                               + " is supported or not? :"
                               + Charset.isSupported("ISO-2022-CN"));
        }
        catch (Exception e) {
            System.out.println("Exception: "
                               + e);
        }
    }
}
Output: 
ISO-2022-CN is supported or not? :true

 

Program 2: 

Java




// Java program to demonstrate
// the above function
import java.nio.charset.Charset;
 
public class GFG {
 
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        try {
            System.out.println("ISO is "
                               + "supported or not? :"
                               + Charset.isSupported("ISO"));
        }
        catch (Exception e) {
            System.out.println("Exception: " + e);
        }
    }
}
Output: 
ISO is supported or not? :false

 

Program 3: 

Java




// Java program to demonstrate
// the above function
import java.nio.charset.Charset;
 
public class GFG {
 
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        try {
            System.out.println("NULL is "
                               + "supported or not? :"
                               + Charset.isSupported(""));
        }
        catch (Exception e) {
            System.out.println("Exception: "
                               + e);
        }
    }
}
