Subject Re: Incorrect reading of property containing accented chars from build.properties by custom task
Date Sat, 21 Apr 2012 08:13:56 GMT
Forgot to mention...

If instead of using build.properties file, I directly add the property 
like -DAPPLICATION_GUID=HELLOÀÁÂ, it works even in the CentOS box.
However, I would still like to be able to do this with the properties 
file for obvious reasons.
