Subject [jira] [Commented] (MRESOURCES-171) ISO8859-1 properties files get changed into UTF-8 when filtered
Date Fri, 01 Jan 2016 21:15:39 GMT


Aaron Digulla commented on MRESOURCES-171:

[~khmarbaise] You obviously didn't understand the bug. In a nutshell: UTF-8 encoding is *illegal*
for properties files. GIF files have a defined layout, properties files have one. They *look*
like text files but they are text files with ISO-8859-1 encoding *everywhere*. No exceptions,
not even for Maven. If you don't like that or you think that is wrong, please get in contact
with Oracle and have the file format changed.

So please reopen the bug, it's a real, serious, and causes data corruption.

> Expected:
> ISO8859-1 encoded file in jar.
> Actual:
> UTF-8 encoded file in jar.

> If there are any property files (which can only be ISO8859-1) they appear to be converted
into UTF-8 in the jar.
