Java Question

Easy way to remove UTF-8 accents from a string?

I want to change this sentence :

Et ça sera sa moitié.

To :

Et ca sera sa moitie.

Is there an easy way to do this in Java, like I would do in Objective-C ?

NSString *str = @"Et ça sera sa moitié.";
NSData *data = [str dataUsingEncoding:NSASCIIStringEncoding allowLossyConversion:YES];
NSString *newStr = [[NSString alloc] initWithData:data encoding:NSASCIIStringEncoding];

Finally I solved it :

public static String stripAccents(String s) 
    s = Normalizer.normalize(s, Normalizer.Form.NFD);
    s = s.replaceAll("[\\p{InCombiningDiacriticalMarks}]", "");
    return s;
