CharsetEncoder isLegalReplacement() method in Java with Examples

The isLegalReplacement() method is a built-in method of the java.nio.charset.CharsetEncoder gives us an indication on whether or not the given byte array is a legal replacement value for this encoder. A replacement is legal if it is possible to decode the replacement into one or more sixteen-bit Unicode characters.

Syntax:

public boolean isLegalReplacement(byte[] repl)

Parameters: The function accepts a mandatory parameter repl which specifies the byte array to be tested.



Return Value: The function returns a boolean value. It returns true if the byte array is a legal replacement of the encoder, else it returns false.

Below is the implementation of the above function:

        // Gets the encoder
        CharsetEncoder encoder = Charset.forName("UTF8").newEncoder();
  
        // Prints if legal or not
        System.out.println(encoder.isLegalReplacement(new byte[] {}));
    }
