      Description



      Name: dfR10049 Date: 10/03/2000



      Java ignores -Dfile.encoding while creating Reader/Writer with default
      encoding. It always uses system default on Solaris 2.7.

      On Solaris 2.6 if LC_CTYPE=ru it also ignores -Dfile.encoding parameter.

      jdk1.1.* works correctly.

      This is the test demonstrated the bug:

      -------------------------------------
      import java.io.*;

      public class Test {

        static public void main (String[] args) {
              System.out.println("file.encoding " +
                      System.getProperty("file.encoding"));
              OutputStreamWriter wtr =
                      new OutputStreamWriter(new ByteArrayOutputStream());
           System.out.println("encoding " + wtr.getEncoding());
        }
      }

      -------- output from the text on Solaris 2.7 ----------------
      (jdk versions: 1.4)

      #> uname -a

      #> export LC_CTYPE=ru

      #> java Test

      encoding ISO8859_5

      #> java -Dfile.encoding=Cp037 Test
      file.encoding Cp037
      encoding ISO8859_5

      example of correctly behavior on Solaris 2.7:

      #> /usr/local/java/jdk1.1.8/solaris/bin/java -Dfile.encoding=Cp037 Test

      -------- output from the text on Solaris 2.6 ----------------
      #> uname -a
      SunOS helmet 5.6 Generic_105181-16 sun4u sparc SUNW,Ultra-

      #> java -version

      Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.4.0beta-b34)
      Java HotSpot(TM) Core VM (build 1.3-internal, interpreted mode)

      correctly works when LC_CTYPE=C

      #> export LC_CTYPE=C
      #> java Test
      file.encoding 8859_1
      encoding ISO8859_1

      #> java -Dfile.encoding=Cp037 Test
      K@Ãðó÷@Ãðó÷

      Incorrectly works when LC_CTYPE=ru
      #> export LC_CTYPE=ru

      #> java Test
      file.encoding koi8-r
      encoding KOI8_R

      #> java -Dfile.encoding=Cp037 Test
      file.encoding Cp037
      encoding KOI8_R
