> With JDK9 the behaviour of javadoc has apparently changed (at least on Windows platform).
> In a project with special characters (umlaut) in the organization name the content of
the options file was written with the default platform encoding (cp1252).
> As a result, the javadoc generation fails on javadoc execution with "Exit code: 1 - javadoc:
error - cannot read Input length = 1".
> With JDK8 javadoc generation works.
> It also succeeds with JDK9 and setting the environment variable: JAVA_TOOL_OPTIONS=-Dfile.encoding=UTF-8
> However, this should not be necessary, and maven-javadoc-plugin should work out of the
> h6. Cause:
> After some tests it appears to be the case that the JDK9 Javadoc reads @-files always
with UTF-8 charset, regardless of platform encoding.
> I looked into the issue and prepared a patch for the plugin when working with JDK9+ and
added two tests for the temporary files options and argfile.
> To my knowledge, the temporary file "packages" cannot contain special characters, since
this isn't allowed in the java specification, so no workaround is added.
> The file javadoc.bat is not affected (a test with a JDK in the directory "C:\jdk9äöüß"
worked with the file being platform encoded).
> h6. 
> Resolution:
> I'll try to create a pull request from
