While looking at Character, i noticed the code looked very different for 'int' than 'char' here.
in particular the int method defers to ICU, but the char method binsearches its own table.
and the comment for that table is:
// Unicode 3.0.1 (same as Unicode 3.0.0)
private static final char typeValues ....
But Unicode 3 is the wrong version for java5/6
So, i tried a character whose type changed from 3.0 to 4.0, just to see.
For example, compare these two results:
Character.getType('\u17B5') = 8 (combining mark)
Character.getType((int) '\u17B5') = 16 (format)
