Subject [jira] Created: (MJAVADOC-165) Provide specific default value for "encoding" parameter
Date Tue, 15 Jan 2008 11:21:57 GMT
Provide specific default value for "encoding" parameter
-------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: MJAVADOC-165
                 URL: http://jira.codehaus.org/browse/MJAVADOC-165
             Project: Maven 2.x Javadoc Plugin
          Issue Type: Improvement
    Affects Versions: 2.3
            Reporter: Benjamin Bentmann
            Priority: Minor
         Attachments: source-encoding.patch

As stated in the [javadoc doc|http://java.sun.com/javase/6/docs/technotes/tools/windows/javadoc.html#encoding],
the parameter "encoding" defaults to the platform's default encoding if not specified. This
might be a convenient feature when running javadoc directly from the console prompt (less
typing) but I consider this harmful for an automated build. The platform's default encoding
might easily differ between machines/developers, causing unreliable build output.

Please see the related issue MCOMPILER-63 for further explanations.
