mappingTypes - an int which determines whether to consider only roundtrip mappings or also fallbacks, e.g. CharsetICU.ROUNDTRIP_SET. See CharsetICU.java for the constants that are currently supported.

IllegalArgumentException - if the parameters is invalid.
IllegalCharsetNameException - If the given charset name is illegal.
UnsupportedCharsetException - If no support for the named charset is available in this instance of the Java virtual machine.
