Supported Encodings

By default, iCal4j supports the MIME encodings specified in RFC2045 as follows:

  • 7BIT - An "indicator" that the data is 7bit data.
  • 8BIT - An "indicator" that the data is 8bit data.
  • BINARY - An "indicator" that the data is binary data.
  • QUOTED-PRINTABLE - Transforms data into printable ASCII characters.
  • BASE64 - Transforms data into the Base64 representation of its bytes.

Additional Encodings

You may add support for additional encodings by providing an implementation of

net.fortuna.ical4j.util.EncoderFactory
and/or
net.fortuna.ical4j.util.DecoderFactory
. You can instruct iCal4j to use these factories by specifying the following system properties:

net.fortuna.ical4j.factory.encoder=
net.fortuna.ical4j.factory.decoder=
