Then do some research on your own or provide some of your code and explain what it wrong.

Give a sample of what you want ??
We cant dream up things you know !!!

I checked out the link, and the code seems to do what you want.

What code have you tried? What problems are occurring with it? Have you studied the Sun tutorials and the APIs related to this code?

"Please solve my porblem friends"(sic) doesn't show any effort on your part.

Try this. Looks like proper tabbing is not supported her, but I think you can figure it out.

/**
	 * Method convert(String str)
	 * Implemented as a class method.
	 * 
	 * Takes one argument: a string that may contain international characters.
	 * Returns: a string with the international characters converted to hex-encoded unicode.
	 * A hex-encoded unicode character has this format: \ u x x x x (spaces added for emphasis)
	 * where xxxx is the hex-encoded value of the character. The xxxx part is
	 * always 4 digits, 0 filled to make 4 digits.
	 * 
	 * Example input/output:
	 * 		Input string:   ConstituciĆ³n
	 * 		Encoded output: Constituci\u00f3n
	 * 
	 * Example call: String term = unicodeString.convert("ConstituciĆ³n"); 
	 */

import java.util.Locale;

public class unicodeString
{
	public static String convert(String str)
	{
		StringBuffer ostr = new StringBuffer();

		for(int i=0; i<str.length(); i++) 
		{
			char ch = str.charAt(i);

			if ((ch >= 0x0020) && (ch <= 0x007e))	// Does the char need to be converted to unicode? 
			{
				ostr.append(ch);					// No.
			} else 									// Yes.
			{
	        	ostr.append("\\u") ;				// standard unicode format.
				String hex = Integer.toHexString(str.charAt(i) & 0xFFFF);	// Get hex value of the char. 
				for(int j=0; j<4-hex.length(); j++)	// Prepend zeros because unicode requires 4 digits
					ostr.append("0");
				ostr.append(hex.toLowerCase());		// standard unicode format.
				//ostr.append(hex.toLowerCase(Locale.ENGLISH));
			}
		}

	return (new String(ostr));		//Return the stringbuffer cast as a string.

	}

Would be down to the fact that solution was provided 6 months after initial request when people either solve it on their own or already forgot and move on with other stuff
