Subject [jira] [Created] (CAMEL-4491) dataCoding not working properly in camel-smpp

dataCoding not working properly in camel-smpp

                 Key: CAMEL-4491
             Project: Camel
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: camel-smpp
    Affects Versions: 2.8.0, 2.7.0, 2.9.0
            Reporter: Jonas Bengtsson
         Attachments: patch.txt

This is related to CAMEL-3093.

The way the dataCoding option works is incorrect (or at least very confusing). After reading
the documentation I was under the impression that the given value would be used in the data_coding-part
of the submit_sm PDU-packets, but this is not the case. When 0 is given as dataCoding 0x11
(hexadecimal) is sent in the PDU-packets. If 4 is specified 0x15 is sent, and if 8 is specified
then 0x19 is sent. This is caused in SmppProducer by the use of the constructor with several
new GeneralDataCoding(
It constructs a DCS-value as defined in the GSM 03.38 specification, not as specified in the
SMPP specification. 0x11 is for example a valid DCS-value in GSM 03.38, but is reserved in
SMPP. I think that it would be better and more logical if the constructor with one parameter
was used instead:
new GeneralDataCoding(submitSm.getDataCoding())

This is more flexibal (DCS-values can still be created manually) and is a better default value
(0 instead of 0x11). With my SMS-center (this probably varies between centers though) a data_coding
of 0x11 forces me to do the 7-bit GSM decoding myself. When 0 is specified (or 3) all I have
to do is to pass it ISO-8859-1 encoded bytes.
