>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CODEC-73
>             Project: Commons Codec
>          Issue Type: Bug
>    Affects Versions: 1.3
>         Environment: any platform whose default encoding is not a superset of ASCII,
e.g. UTF-16 or EBCDIC
>            Reporter: Benjamin Bentmann
>             Fix For: 1.4
>
>         Attachments: CODEC-73.patch, Hex.patch

> Both the library itself and many of its tests are utterly dependent on the JVM's default
charset. For example, {{DigestUtils}} calls {{String.getBytes()}} to convert an input string
to a byte array, happily delivering different digests for the same input string if run on
different platforms.
> If you want to try out the havor yourself, just run the unit tests in a JVM with UTF-16,
e.g. by adding the line
> {code:xml}
> <argLine>-Dfile.encoding=UTF-16</argLine>
> {code}
> to the configuration of the Surefire Plugin in the POM.
