      Description

      Text in java.lang.Character states a UTF-16 character encoding is used for java.lang.String. While was true for many years, it is not necessarily true and not true in practice as of JDK 9 due to the improvements from JEP 254: Compact Strings.

      The statement about the encoding should be corrected.
