Can we encode the protobuf data in ISO-8859-1 from the server end
Yes. In this case, you need to use the protocol buffer "bytes" type
instead of the protocol buffer "string" type, since you want to
exchange ISO-8859-1 bytes from program to program (bytes), not unicode
On the Java side, you'll need to use
ByteString.copyFrom(myStringobject, "ISO-8859-1") to make a ByteString
out of a Java string.
Hope this helps,
