Subject [jira] Commented: (AXIS2C-1046) mod_axis2.dll load fails on Win XP SP2 (Japanese edition)
Date Fri, 07 Mar 2008 16:29:46 GMT


Senaka Fernando commented on AXIS2C-1046:

Hi Bill,

Well I didn't mean that unicode == UTF-8, and this is rather an underestimation. The real
issue here is the use of multibyte strings. Even UTF-8 is multibyte. But, the problem is that
some strxx() functions can't handle this. strlen() is a good example. In the Japanese case,
the resultant length_of_string = x, means no_of_bytes = 2x. and strlen() will also return
2x. What I'm wondering is the way you got UTF-8 to work. And, also, passing UTF-8 into char
*, would rather be somewhat a hack right? One char is 1 byte and thus, 2-byte UTF-8 is not
gonna work as we expect. :D...

Once, wchar_t support is in place we can support upto 4-byte character sets. 

I'm sorry if wide-char (unicode) gave you a wrong impression that they are equivalent, as
in reality that statement doesn't make sense.

If this doesn't make sense, try strlen("Schöne Grüße") which will return 15 instead of
12. The reason is that u'll find 3 characters beyond the 256 range. Try wcslen("Schöne Grüße")
and u'll get 12 as you expect.
