Encoding should come through per default
This seems to be really happening again and again.

A UTF-8-encoded file get corrupted when updated.

The file is the file RecB behind the synchronizer seems to get corrupted when I so6 update… ending with Invalid byte 2 of 2-byte UTF-8 sequence.

The update sounds working ok but that error appears at XML parsing then (in our servers). The REFCOPY has the same problem.

The original file is perfectly fine.

comment by Paul Libbrecht - 22 Apr 08 02:59 PM thanks,

that was indeed. Please reformulate my issue as "encoding should come through per default".

(indeed I see some crazy old-practice where people change eols and encoding depending on the platform)

comment by Paul Libbrecht - 22 Apr 08 02:41 PM erm… does it mean that the encoding at the repository is not transmitted to the command-line client ?



PS: nowadays everything should be utf-8 (personal opinion)

comment by Sebastien Jourdain - 22 Apr 08 02:16 PM In the command line add the java property: -Dfile.encoding=ISO-8859-1 or UTF8 if its the encoding used in your JNLP file of your update or commit.

comment by Paul Libbrecht - 22 Apr 08 12:59 PM Here's how to reproduce:
  • create workspace using javaws
  • then invoke so6 update -w . from the command-line
This does not happen if the so6 command-line is not used. Maybe I have the wrong command-line jars… where can i download them?

__bold__boldsimple bold text
~~italics~~italicssimple italic text
--strike--strikestrike through text
(empty line) produces a new paragraph
 creates a line break, please use sparingly!
[/documentation] or [../documentation] or [/documentation|Doc]Like a standard linkinternal link to another document a link to an external resource, special characters that come after the URL and are not part of it must be separated with a space.
\XXescape special character X (i.e. {)
