Subject [jira] [Commented] (CODEC-140) isBase64 returns true for any UTF8 string
Date Thu, 26 Apr 2012 16:18:20 GMT

Julius Davies commented on CODEC-140:
-------------------------------------


I don't think it's a bug.  The javadoc on isBase64() makes it clear that "Hello" should return
true:

"Tests a given String to see if it contains only valid characters within the Base64 alphabet.
Currently the method treats whitespace as valid."

> I just called Base64.isBase64("Hello") for instance and it returns true. I thought it
would return true only if it is valid base64 encoded string.
