Subject [jira] Commented: (MECLIPSE-56) Generated .project-file misses encoding declaration
Date Sat, 07 Oct 2006 00:54:29 GMT
    [ ] 
Kenney Westerhof commented on MECLIPSE-56:

There's no need to specify an encoding in the <?xml processing instruction, since UTF-8
is the default encoding.

Also java strings are printed as utf-8 by default, so there's probably only an issue in reading
them from the pom.

> Hi,
> I'm experiencing problems creating eclipse project files, if the project's description
in pom.xml contains special characters like german umlauts (like "öüä"). Refreshing the
eclipse workspace after running eclipse:eclipse results in the following message from eclipse:
> "Errors occurred while refreshing resources with the local file system.
>   Failed to read the project description file (.project) for comworld-eventlisteners.
 The file has been changed on disk, and it now contains invalid information.  The project
will not function properly until the description file is restored to a valid state."
> This is caused by the content of the .project's generated comment-tag containing the
exact same description as in pom.xml. But the .project-file is generated without stating an
encoding parser should use to read it. So, if I prepend the line
>    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-15"?>
> eclipse is able to read the file just fine.
> Regards,
> Stefan
