UTF-8 Vs UTF-16

1766 Views

Hi,

I am trying to understand in what scenario can use different encoding schemes ex. UTF-16.

Based on my understanding when PI / PO picks up a file, it gets encoded using UTF-8 by default. Also an option is available in sender adapter of File type which when we select to Text, we can specify differetnt encoding like UTF-16. I have tried to using UTF-16 in the scenario which is working fine using File type as binary (default encoding as UF-8) and it stopped working and am able to see some funny characters in the payload. Can you please let me know why can't we use different encoding in this scenario.

Regards,

Abhishek
