Subject [jira] Updated: (DERBY-903) Remove use of String(byte[]) and String(byte[], int, int) constructors in testing leading to non-portable behaviour
Date Mon, 13 Feb 2006 10:39:43 GMT
     [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-903?page=all ]

Myrna van Lunteren updated DERBY-903:

    Attachment: DERBY-903_021306.stat

This patch fixes the occurrence of the constructors as reported, and in addition, fixes the
4 tests to use
fixed strings so the test passes with a different encoding in the following cases:
- string.getBytes()
       especially frequent in the blobclob4BLOB test, where it is used to obtain a number
of bytes to insert into a blob. 
       Using this without the encoding causes problems with other encodings.
- change to use FileInputStream and InputStreamReader for subtest clobNegativeTest_Derby265
of blobclob4BLOB. (see also comment in DERBY-575)

> These constructors use the Java default platform encoding to convert the bytes to a String,
this typically leads to bugs on platforms with different encodings.
> Replace with code using fixed conversion, or alternative mechanisms. 
> If the call is required its use should be commented as to why it is required.
