Subject bug/todo: SOAPBody does not support non LATIN1 character sets
Date Tue, 05 Feb 2002 10:30:54 GMT
Currently SOAPBody.getBytes() just calls getBytes() on the string object.
This will use VM's default character set. That happens to be "Cp1252" on
most systems, so any non LATIN characters in <Envelope> will get corrupt.

Likewise, when creating a String from the raw bytes default encoding is

I think that as a temporary solution, encoding could be forced to UTF-8,
since it is also hard coded as Content-Type ("text/xml; charset=utf-8") in
Message and MimeUtils classes during serialization.

What was the plan for supporting Unicode and other character sets?
