java.lang.Character toTitleCase(int codePoint)


The Character.toTitleCase(int codePoint) java method converts the character (Unicode code point) argument to titlecase using case mapping information from the UnicodeData file. If a character has no explicit titlecase mapping and is not itself a titlecase char according to UnicodeData, then the uppercase mapping is returned as an equivalent titlecase mapping. If the character argument is already a titlecase character, the same character value will be returned.

Note that Character.isTitleCase(Character.toTitleCase(codePoint)) does not always return true for some ranges of characters.

The toTitleCase(int codePoint) method of Character class is static thus it should be accessed statically which means the we would be calling this method in this format:

Character.toTitleCase(int codePoint)

Non static method is usually called by just declaring method_name(argument) however in this case since the method is static, it should be called by appending the class name as suffix. We will be encountering a compilation problem if we call the java toTitleCase() method non statically.
