Subject file.encoding within <junit> task
Date Wed, 07 Mar 2007 11:01:49 GMT
Is anyone else using Ant's <junit> task on z/OS and having various
file/string encoding issues?  We're using Ant 1.6.2 on z/OS 1.7 with WAS
6.1's Java 5 and some of our tests get errors due to XML parsing errors.
In looking into this issue it appears that the file.encoding property
set to "UTF-8" at <junit> invocation gets changed by Ant somewhere along
the way back to the default IBM-1047 encoding when some of the tests

The way I've gotten around this is to implement a simple RMI class to
invoke junit so that encoding is still honored from the <java> task to
the test class, but we then don't get the Ant-builtin HTTP Junit report
