If you are using Non-Latin English characters in your code (if you are Swedish or German example: Å Ä Ö) then you might see this error message if you have the file encoding which is not UTF-8. You either need to save this file as UTF-8 or remove such characters.

Solution:

If you are using eclipse, Go to Window -> Preferences -> Search Workspace -> Text Encoding => UTF-8
