Can we encode the protobuf data in ISO-8859-1 from the server end itself?

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 text (string).

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,
