Subject [jira] [Commented] (CONFIGURATION-457) Escape only unicode characters not supported by the file encoding
Date Thu, 04 Aug 2011 21:31:27 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CONFIGURATION-457?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13079611#comment-13079611
] 

Emmanuel Bourg commented on CONFIGURATION-457:
----------------------------------------------

This could be implemented by using the {{java.nio.charset.CharsetEncoder}} class to check
if the characters can be encoded. Unsupported characters would be escaped.

I'm not working on a fix now, so if someone want to pick the task, it's free.

> A non ASCII character is always escaped in a PropertiesConfiguration, even if the encoding
selected supports it. It can make the properties file difficult to read and edit manually,
especially for non latin languages.
