Class Utf8Appendable

Direct Known Subclasses:
NullAppendable, Utf8StringBuffer, Utf8StringBuilder

public abstract class Utf8Appendable extends Object
Utf8 Appendable abstract base class This abstract class wraps a standard Appendable and provides methods to append UTF-8 encoded bytes, that are converted into characters. This class is stateful and up to 4 calls to append(byte) may be needed before state a character is appended to the string buffer. The UTF-8 decoding is done by this class and no additional buffers or Readers are used.
