But there are cases where Java has to deal with non-UTF-16 data, for
example when converting between a String and a byte array. The
file.encoding Java property controls how the byte array is
interpreted
by Java.

Good point! I guess I am confused. I thought the file.encoding was used when the data was read or written to the file. Do you mean that if affects how Java inteprets a the bytes in a byte[] variable? Time for me to hit the books again!
