Java's version of UTF-8

I would like to know if any Java experts on the list can

(1) confirm for me that Java's version of UTF-8 differs only in
    encoding U+0000 as { C0 80 } rather than { 00 }, and

(2) explain why it was necessary for Java to break the standard
    to ensure that every character, EVEN THE NULL CHARACTER, be
    encoded without the use of the null character.

Thanks in advance,
