With the releases of J2SE v1.4.X, Java added support for some Indic scripts and languages. This is practical look at how-tos of Indic display in Java.

In this session, I will talk about which platforms best support Java Indic display, what Indic fonts are available that work with Java, and how to configure Java to use these fonts - including insights into font.properties modification. In previous Unicode conferences this presentation focused on Devanagari and Telugu scripts. This time, it will take a look at Gujarati, Punjabi, Tamil and possibly Bengali, Malayalam, and Oriya.
